Caltech Library - Kindle Pilot Program

Recognizing the increasing popularity of e-readers and electronic access to books, Caltech Library has decided to introduce a pilot program to lend Kindles to its students and faculty.  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 3 day loan period from the Sherman Fairchild Library.
