Slides From NISO’s Mobile Technology Webinar Now Available

NISO’s (National Information Standards Organization) 90 minute “Knowledge in Your Pocket: Mobile Technology and Libraries” webinar took place yesterday afternoon.


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?
