Information Anywhere: Mobile Technology, Libraries and Health


This four-hour class is an overview of the plethora of mobile devices available today and how they impact libraries and healthcare. We will discuss Apple's products (including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad), Google Android-powered phones and devices as well as other popular mobile devices. Popular uses and applications for these devices, with particular emphasis on those that make use of the products of the National Library of Medicine will be highlighted. Students will learn what it takes to create mobile applications and websites, and will participate in a hands-on activity to create a simple mobile website. QR (Quick Response) Codes and Augmented Reality will also be discussed. If you own or have access to a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc.), please bring it to class.
