Mobile technology is fast becoming the preferred method for connecting to the Internet, especially for people on the go. Librarians must keep pace with this trend and integrate themselves into the mobile realm if they wish to deliver enhanced user services. Mobile Technology and Libraries is a practical, easy-to-follow new resource that will walk you through the start-to-finish steps for strengthening your library's mobile presence. Author Jason Griffey outlines the different mobile platforms, devices, and services, and shows you how to create mobile library websites and implement a number of important developments including mobile reference and SMS. He also explains how the various affected parts of the library--reference, I.T. circulation--can work together. You'll learn techniques for marketing and measuring your services, and best practices to follow during planning, implementation, and evaluation. This highly practical new Tech Set title will help both novice and experienced librarians embrace these crucial new technologies and stay relevant in an increasingly mobile society.
