ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Mobile technology has become the preferred method for connecting to the
Internet, especially for busy library patrons, faculty, researchers, and
students. To meet this need, many publishers are adding mobile options to
their resources, either through an app, site optimization or other
platforms. How are libraries managing the various options now available for
their users? How are librarians keeping up with this modern trend and what
skills are necessary to deliver enhanced user services? Join NISO for the
October 9 webinar on Knowledge in Your Pocket: Mobile Technology and
Libraries to learn about these issues and more.
