Caltech Library - Kindle Program

Recognizing the increasing popularity of e-readers and electronic access to books, Caltech Library has decided to introduce a program to lend Kindles to its students, faculty, and staff.  The Library's goal is to provide a service which increases quick access to titles and to investigate more patron-initiated acquisitions.  Currently, the Caltech Library has 6 Kindle Wi-Fi eReaders available for a 7 day loan period from the Sherman Fairchild Library.
