- The article looks at the use of iPad for reference services at Morris Library at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. It says that these devices have allowed librarians to access information, such as a call number, without asking a student to find and log into a desktop. iPads have also provided mobility to the librarians assigned to virtual reference service. However, librarians have reported that they are uncomfortable using the iPad as a replacement for a traditional laptop, while some of them are concerned about the fragility of the touch screen.
