Student Checkout iPads Now Available

Sam Forester, a Mac System Administrator at the Marriott Library, created this software to help students have a more customizable experience. Users can configure the devices however they like, install their own applications, and even use iCloud, while maintaining user data privacy between each checkout.

The Marriott Library is dedicated to the success of all University of Utah students. We believe that the only acceptable limit to a student’s education, should be their own imagination. We are proud to announce yet another addition to our vast collection of student resources and services: Student Checkout iPads.

With the ability to customize, configure, install, and change whatever they see fit, we have provided our students with unprecedented freedom and control of these devices; allowing our resources to remain as adaptive as our students’ needs.

Using software designed by our own dedicated and talented staff, we were able to add this service without the need for any additional funding for personnel, training, or software licensing.

In the spirit of “One U”, we have made our iPad automation software available for use by other entities on campus for free. If you are curious about how you can implement your own Student Checkout iPads, additional information can be found here.
