Mobile applications can support learning by making library resources more available, by bringing new users to the library’s resources, and enhancing connections between patrons and librarians.  Mobile technology provides an untapped resource for delivering library resources to patrons. Librarians need strategies for creating a suite of mobile services for a majority of mobile web platforms. This class raises awareness about the issues surrounding mobile application development.

This half-day class is designed to provide background on how mobile applications are being used in libraries. In addition the class will provide tips on developing library-related mobile services. The session will include both demonstrations and hands-on activities for librarians in attendance. No mobile device is required to attend the class.

To REGISTER for this class, go to the online registration form. Registration is limited to 30 participants.

For further information, please contact Lisa Massengale at or 312.996-0816. The class is being made available through a Professional Instruction Award granted by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Greater Midwest Region.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. N01-LM-6-3503 with the University of Illinois at Chicago.
