Will using a tablet computer in the classroom help motivate law students and engage their interest in legal research? This was the question vetted by the teaching librarians at Boston College Law Library while applying for a university grant to supply iPad 2s to instructors as part of a pilot program. After using the iPads for more than a semester, these same librarians can respond “Yes!” to the question of whether tablets stimulate student interest and interaction in the classroom.
