06 May Mobile technologies in libraries – share your ideas
I am delighted to be speaking at the 2011 CoFHE Conference next month on mobile technologies in libraries. My interest in mobile technologies largely stems from my own experimentation with various different mobile apps and thinking about how they can be applied to a library setting. I’ve blogged previously about some mobile library apps (and played with many more on my iPhone/iPad), discussed some of the potential uses of QR codes in the library (which have been popping up in lots of places since I blogged about them), and talked about the way I supported enquiries using mobile devices. Over the past few months I’ve been collecting various emails, blog posts and articles on mobile technology use in libraries to share during my presentation, but I’d like to open it up further to get some more practical examples to share during my presentation.
So, what cool stuff have you been doing in your library with mobile technologies? Or what would you like to try? Do you have any links to blog posts or articles about innovative things libraries are doing with mobile technologies? Please add your comment below or tweet @joeyanne using #cofhemobapps. Looking forward to hearing from you!
