Librarians Without Walls - Applying Mobile Technology to Virtual Library Services

iPads will be purchased to improve library services by allowing librarian/patron encounters to occur in any location. Improvements in services include immediate demonstrations, portability, instant access to e-resources in meeting settings, simplified exchange, and hands-on experience. Wireless access and portability will allow for a more proactive outreach to boost awareness of library resources and services, not only to in-house staff but also to underserved staff in areas such as outpatient therapy, oncology care, wound care, specialty surgery, ob/gyn clinic and home health.
