Abstract

More people are joining the mobile society and libraries are beginning to provide on the go library service. There are several types of mobile devices, including cell phones, smartphones, PDAs, the iPad, etc. One-third of all Americans accessed the web using these devices in 2009. How can your library provide an access point for mobile research? This presentation will show you how two libraries have done this for their customers, how you can create a basic mobile site for your library, and how you can provide access to databases now offering mobile interfaces.
