Projection screen

HP ElitePad 1000 Tablet PC –  Using a wireless tablet PC and Polaris Inventory Manager Software, you can go to the shelves to take an inventory of items. Taking an inventory will improve the accuracy of our catalog and can help you weed your collections. This tablet runs Windows 8 as its operating system.

Loan period: Up to 30 days’ use; may be extendable.

Delivery: May be placed in delivery using padded delivery tote.

Internet connection: Wireless access is required to use the PIM software.  You can load a set of items from anywhere in your library so a separate router should not be required.

Who may borrow equipment:  MVLS member libraries and SCPL branches

How to borrow: You can check for availability at our booking calendar.

Print and send equipment booking request/user agreement form signed by the library director to MVLS by fax or delivery.

User responsibility for all equipment loans:  The library director must sign and return the equipment booking request/user agreement form. The borrowing library is expected to provide security and prevent loss, misuse or abuse of the equipment. Damage or loss will be charged to the borrowing library (excepting acts of God).
