We installed Find my iPad through iCloud. We have not needed to use it because we have a strong circulation policy<http://blog.spu.edu/librarytechdesk/files/2012/09/iPad-Checkout-Policy-2012.pdf> that will fine the students if they are late or do not return it. The fine goes directly to their student account (won't be able to register for classes, for example).

Dear Fellow Techs,
We're looking to create a circulation policy for iPads (gen 4) in the
Learning Commons, and were wondering about an app that will lock the device
after a specific amount of time (3-4 hours). The idea is if a student
does, in fact, steal the device, they will be locked out of actually
utilizing it. Has anyone heard of something like this?
