App Guide

The goal of the Phillip Memorial Library + Commons' iPad initiative is to lend iPads to the Providence College community including faculty, students, and staff. The project aims to help our patrons become more comfortable with iPad and iOS mobile technologies and their applications, and to foster a greater understanding of how mobile technologies can enhance the environment for teaching, learning, and research.

Caring for the iPad

o   Extremely low or high temperatures can temporarily cause the iPad to stop working properly.  Avoid exposure to humidity and dramatic temperature changes.  Please don't leave the iPad in a parked car.

o   Don’t use the iPad in the rain, and be careful not to spill any liquids on it.  If the iPad gets wet, unplug all cables and let it dry completely before turning it back on.  Never use a hair dryer or microwave to dry the iPad!

o   To clean the iPad, use a soft, lint-free cloth.  Avoid getting moisture in openings, and do not use solvents, glass cleaners, aerosol sprays, ammonia, or abrasives.

o   Keep the iPad safe! Never leave the iPad unattended.

o   iPads are very fragile! Please do not remove the iPad from its case unless absolutely necessary!
