6 Ways to Use iPads in Your Law Firm | Clio

Posted by Derek Bolen on October 17, 2014

Apple’s iPad, the tablet device that has become so ubiquitious that it’s now a proprietary eponym for tablets themselves (much to the chagrin of Microsoft), continues to make gains in law firm adoption. Of the 49% of respondents in ABA’s annual Legal Technology Survey who use a tablet for law-related tasks away from the office, 81% use iOS devices; and, as our ‘Apple in Law Offices‘ survey showed last year, in-firm iPad usage rose 10% over the previous year to 67%.

Why the continued growth in iPad usage? Part of the charm of the venerable devices lies with their versatility and ease of use, coupled with a growing desire on the part of law firms to go paperless. We’ve covered some of the multitude of use cases for law firm iPad use below to get you started.

How to read books from your local library on your tablet — Tech News and Analysis

by Mark Crump

If you haven’t been inside your local library in the last ten years, you might be surprised how easy it is to check out ebooks.

***

The first step is to go to the closest branch of your library, make sure they have a digital library, and get a library card if you don’t have one. They will usually give you a pamphlet with the actual website to access the ebook. One there, you will need to create an account and link your library card number to it. You will then be able to browse the selections on your computer, iOS or Android device. When you search on a title you will get one of three possible results: the title cannot be found; the title is available, but is currently checked out; or the title is available for check out. If the title is available for borrowing, it will have a solid black book icon; if it’s already checked out, it will have a gray book icon.
