Tips for setting up iPads for public areas

WebJunction: I Fought the iPads (and iWon)Thinking about setting up iPads for use in your library? In the recent WebJunction post, "I fought the iPads (and iWon)," Sally-Adrina Taylor discusses her experiences deploying iPad displays for children at the Rapid City Public Libraries.

I was particularly interested to read her recommendations for stands and cables and her tips for volume settings and apps. Sally-Adrina also includes some links to other resources, like this excellent ALATechSource slideshare presentation about integrating iPads and tablets into library services. There are definitely lots of factors to take into consideration when planning and preparing to provide these devices to the public!

Are you using iPads in your library, and if so, how?  (for staff or patrons? if for patrons --- for adults or children? tethered or loaned out?)
Thanks to Cheryl Becker for bringing this WebJunction article to my attention!
