Mobile Technologies in Libraries - Changing the way we work/ Ann Whitney Gleason MLIS, AHIP
The use of mobile technology in libraries to enhance resources and services is a growing trend. People all over the world are already using mobile technology in their personal lives to find information, communicate with friends and family, shop, and keep track of daily appointments. Mobile technology allows people to look up information anytime, anywhere at the point of need, whether for work or personal needs. Librarians have been experimenting with making library resources accessible on mobile devices as well as providing services through the use of mobile technology in the library for several years now. In this presentation, we will explore some of the ways that libraries are leveraging mobile technology to change the way librarians work and to communicate with the people we serve.
