  1. Is this a service that RITE offers (at least, is this a service that is offered anymore)? If not, this article should probably be removed. If so, you may want to fix the "Link goes here" line.

  2. The library currently offers this service through our equipment loan service. We have a few courses that have been using this on a regular basis, and just completed a semester with a music education course this Spring semester. This documentation was just updated in 2016 to reflect the new iOS 9 process in enrolling in AirWatch.
