Into the Cloud
Throughout 2011 the rise of cloud computing uses and options continued to grow. This trend shows no real sign of slowing as we enter 2012. From using the cloud for storage, to accessing and using applications in the cloud on the go, cloud technology has changed user expectations for accessing materials.
Being able to access information, complete tasks or store materials from any location with access to the cloud leads to many possibilities.
New innovations such as the Apple’s iCloud storing and sharing photos and other materials between Apple devices can happen seamlessly.
Cloud computing also provides useful advantages for libraries. In her list 21 Useful Cloud Computing Resources for Librarians, iLibrarian author Ellyssa Krosk provides a detailed list of resources and ideas for using cloud technology in your library.
