Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As technology continues to change in the blink of an eye, librarians cannot afford to be reluctant about embracing those changes. One such area that librarians need to be more cognizant about using to their advantage is mobile technology. The use of mobile devices has exploded recently, and for many library patrons, a smartphone or tablet is their preferred way of accessing and interacting with the library. This book takes a look at trends, offers advice on helping mobile users, discusses how to access content, and also touches on mobile reference services and mobile professional development. Charts, graphs, references, and a thorough index help illuminate the way forward for librarians who need an introduction on the ins and outs of using mobile technology in the library. --Stephanie Charlefour

Review

• Contains contributed chapters from active, innovative, respected librarians in the mobile library movement on ideas and trends for mobile libraries

• Addresses aspects of the mobile revolution that are rarely covered, such as the use of tablet computers in archives and the mHealth information services movement

• Provides updated descriptions of innovative mobile library services

• Supplies practical advice and recommendations about mobile library systems and services



"Written so the novice can understand, while packed with ideas and concepts for the more advanced user, this book will assist any library or media center worker with adding mobile technology into the offerings, whether as an enhancement or new addition."
