iPads

Versions 1 and 2. Six-hour loan period, in-library use only.

Sony Bloggie MP4 Cameras

A ridiculously easy tool for taking video footage. 7-day loan period.

Chargers

There is an iPhone and Android charging station located to the right of the Quick Print stations on the second floor. Phone charging cables and portable USB power supplies are available from the Circulation Desk.

Peripherals

We offer an analog-to-digital converter, which can digitize your old analog recordings and videos.

We also have headphones, headsets, freestanding microphones, web cams, CD/DVD drives, Blu-ray drives, calculators, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, a projector, and a smartcard reader/writer.

Finally, you can check out USB flash drives. They're not as much fun as an iPad, but can be lifesavers when you need to save scans from a non-networked machine (like our color scanner/copier).

Microform Reader

There is a microform reader available to scan and digitize 16/35mm microfilm, fiche, ultra-fiche, opaque cards, and slides. Please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk.

Public Computers in the Library

The Library has over seventy Windows workstations available for use by IC faculty, staff, and students. These are located all around the second floor and along the east and west sides of the third floor. Desktops on the third floor have CD drives. There are also eight iMac computers located on the second floor. Software on these machines is listed below.

Lynda.com offers video courses and tutorials on many of these software packages. These videos are free to the IC campus community.
