iPad Lending Program@James P. Adams Library Kieran Ayton, MLIS
We chose to use an InstitutionalOwnership Model in conjunction withthe Apple Configurator Programbecause we wanted to retain ownershipof all apps that we pre-installed on theJames P. Adams Library iPads. Wehave a “media lab” style setting whereiPads will be checked in and out fromour library’s Reserves Desk for arelatively short period of time. Mostof the iPads will be going out for 2weeks and the rest of the iPads will begoing out for 24 hours.
The Institutional Ownership Model inconjunction with Apple Configurator hasallowed us to pre-load with about 40 appsand web clips (about 2 pages worth oficons).All of our iPads are connected to acentrally controlled iTunes account that isset up with Apple Configurator. Wedownload the free apps through iTunesand the paid apps through the AppleVolume Purchase Program EducationStore.
I created 3 different Apple Accounts:1.Program Manager (AdministratorAccount) to enroll in the Apple VolumePurchase Program (VPP) for myinstitution2. Program Facilitator Account topurchase pay apps in the Apple VPP EducationStore3.An iTunes Account to purchase
