Step 1 – Ipad Lending – Securely Lend 6 to 106 IPads
Patrons check out IPads from the Netspot kiosk securely with a valid patron card through the libraries ILS system. IPads are circulated as they meet the minimum charging threshold that has been set in the kiosk management settings.
Step 2 – Patron Returns IPad and Netspot Wipes the Memory and Re-images the IPad
When patron return the IPad, the kiosk immediately wipes the memory of the IPad for patron privacy and checks the unit back into inventory in the libraries ILS. The patron receives a receipt for proof of checking in the IPad that is time and date stamped. The IPad is re-imaged with the latest IPad image on file with the kiosk and is ready for immediate checkout again by a patron.
Step 3 – Kiosk Automatically Updates Apps and IOS Software
When IPads are docked in the kiosk, the Netspot monitors them 24/7 for the health of each unit. App updates and IOS updates are applied when the library is closed to minimize impact of IPad availability.
