This year the Lupton Library is experimenting with a few new tech gadgets for students to check out and use. The most exciting of these may be the 3 Kindles, the ebook reader from Amazon. We’ve got 2 of the Kindle version 2 (smaller) and 1 of the Kindle DX available for checkout, preloaded with over 150 classics of literature, from Shakespeare to Jane Austen. We also purchased 4 Flip video cameras, 4 Canon digital cameras and 2 Zoom H2 audio recorders.
All of the above tech gadgets for 3 days except for the Kindles which check-out for 7 days.
