The Mobile Advantage: Developing mobile services and resources for libraries
and content providers
To equip attendees with an understanding of the current mobile landscape and
to help them consider the impact this has on libraries, publishers and users
in providing access to resources and services.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
* Understand the current mobile landscape including mobile devices,
technologies, and latest developments
* Share example case studies of how mobile technologies have been used
to support delivery of library services and library content
* Plan next steps forward for investigating use of mobile technologies
in their own work environment
The webinar will provide an overview of current developments in mobile
services and resources for libraries and content providers. Our hosts will
set the scene by sharing some facts and figures about the current mobile
landscape and considering this in a library environment.
The main body of the webinar will focus on sharing examples, advice, and
case studies in the following thematic areas:
1. Developing Mobile Library Services
2. Access to Content
3. The Mobile Advantage
Ben and Jo will conclude with a reality check to apply the ideas into a real
world context and a call to action for those considering developing mobile
services or mobile content.
