Rental tablets for students

[Translate to Englisch:] Universitätsbibliothek: Studierende mit Tablet

Would you like to try something new in your scientific work? You can't do without digital media in the library either? At the UB, several tablets are available for our students for lending.

You can order the tablets via OPAC bestellen and pick them up at the lending desk of the Main Library in Eichstätt or at the lending desk in Ingolstadt. The lending period is four weeks with a maximum of five extensions, as long as no other student has reserved the tablet.

The tablets are delivered in a transport case with a cover and power supply unit with charging cable. You have to set up and configure the tablet yourself. In order to be able to access protected content from outside the KU campus, it is necessary to set up a VPN client on the tablets.

If you would like to install apps from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store, the tablet must be connected to a new or existing Google or Apple account.

Please handle the tablets and accessories with care. Before returning the tablet, delete all personal data by resetting the tablet to the delivery status yourself. If you have any technical questions, please contact the library's IT department at ub-edv(at)ku.de.
