Abstract


The Branch Library of Medicine of the University of Münster recently finished the ipad lending projecteasyphysikum, where 250 undergraduates got an iPad Air for loan equipped with every learning ressource to pass the preclinical exams. The project showed, that a digital mobile learning infrastructure represent an added value compared to traditional ways of learning. In May 2015 the library escalated the project to make it available to all students of medicine.
