We do hotspots at our library as well, I'm interested to hear how another school does it and hopefully pick up some tips to solve some of the problems we have encountered in the last couple of years

We are largely a commuter school and lots of non-traditional students although I don't have numbers. Some of our students use them while on our public transit but for many it's the answer to not being able to afford internet at home. Also lots of our athletes use ours.

How often do you have to charge them? Where/when do you charge them?
Leslie
43:41
Possibly silly question: If the devices are free and you have some devices that are older/slower, then can you return them to Verizon and/or request newer ones to avoid throttle issues?
Jacqueline Carrell
45:07
Do you have any issues with cell tower coverage for students in rural areas? Have any students reported they can't access the internet at home using the devices because of poor cell reception?

Rebecca has shared this form with us, you can access it here: https://libguides.icc.edu/ld.php?content_id=50742561

how do you determine how many devices are at each campus? how do they move between campuses?
Lisa Muilenburg
49:43
If they break it do they get banned from checking out additional devices, or just pay a fine of some sort?
Lizanell Boman
50:17
would you also share the survey?
Lizanell Boman
52:31
we charge for replacing a hotspot. also replacing cords. we've had two lost, one stolen out of someone's car
Lisa Muilenburg
52:35
thank you
Lizanell Boman
54:09
curiosity, what circulation/ilms are you using?
Lizanell Boman
54:13
sorry if you said that before
jamie
55:19
Do you have the same group of students always using the devices or is there a large number of students rotating through them?
Lisa Muilenburg
56:57
Do you pay the $40 a month for each device even if the device isn't checked out?/ activated?
Tammy Kuhn-Schnell
57:08
Semster to semester makes sense.
Jessie Pate
57:38
If you have a wait list, do you have any issues with students not picking up devices when one becomes available for them?
KATHRYN PARK

What's your FTE?
Tammy Kuhn-Schnell
01:02:23
Does the student stay "restricted" at the campus level until he/she pays or returns device?
Tammy Kuhn-Schnell
01:04:46
great thanks.
