McGoogan Library will offer the tablet-lending program through the Resource and Wellness Center at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center. Each tablet will be set up with links to trustworthy health websites, including MedlinePlus, American Cancer Society, National Cancer Institute, and National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines for Patients. There will also be a link to a form to submit a request to the library for research help. Resources to help decrease stress will include apps for meditation, music, games, and sports. When the tablet is returned, the user will complete a brief, anonymous survey. To protect patient privacy, we will not keep track of unique users, and will only count the number of times the tablets are borrowed.
