In spring 2013, OSU Libraries began lending Nexus tablets.
This pilot 
program is intended to help OSU students explore and use new 
technology.  The program’s promotional site said, “They're going out 
the door like hotcakes!” Within three hours of beginning to circulate 
the tablets, all had been lent, and at least 85 users were waiting to 
borrow the tablets upon their return.  OSU Libraries constantly seeks to 
understand how new tools affect students’ ability to find and use 
information. This tablet lending program will improve our 
understanding of how students discover and interact with electronic 
books and other digital content via mobile devices.
