Thank you to the Berkman Faculty Development Committee for providing the funding to purchase the iPad 2s. 

Grateful appreciation is given to the Berkman's:  Their generosity has made the iPad 2 Lending to You program possible.

Additional support provided by Carnegie Mellon University Libraries with a contribution of 10 iPads (3rd generation).  These additional devices have enabled more users to check-out iPads beginning with the Spring 2013 semester.
