New Tablet Purchase

Electronic devices more portable and versatile than laptops have increasingly important roles on campus:  as instructional components, as data-collection devices, and in lieu of sheet music, to name just a few. 

Several departmental funding sources (e.g. start-up funds and research funds) may cover or contribute to the cost and MSP-Research Support Funds may also used for this purpose.  Although tablets are not subject to parameters that guide the purchase of laptop and desktop computers, it is worth reiterating that those purchased with university funds are university property.   For this reason, tablets must be tagged and because they will access the university's network, they need to be configured by Enterprise Desktop Support.
