Tablets offer major potential for library services, including the ability to increase productivity and improve your library’s programs in such areas as reference services, collection management, and library instruction. In this two-part ALA TechSource workshop, Virginia Tech librarians Carolyn Meier and Heather Moorefield-Lang will share their experiences with a multifaceted program, guiding you step-by-step in building a tablet program, from choosing and purchasing tablets through deployment.

You’ll learn how to

compare platforms and features of tablet computers and other mobile devices
select and purchase according to your library’s needs and technology environment
develop policies related to tablet circulation (among both patrons and library staff), connectivity, and content
use tablets to increase staff productivity and enhance professional development
enhance reference and instructional services, collection management, and administration using tablets
