"It's Our Turn to Go Mobile in Our Information Centers"

Reading _Mobile Libraries_ can help information professionals get up to
speed on using mobile devices for more than e-mail.

BY CAROLYN J. SOSNOWSKI, MLIS

Mobile Libraries [ http://mobile-libraries.blogspot.com/ ]

Many of our clients are using mobile devices not only to check e-mail but to
accomplish real work. Now, it's our turn to do the same in our information
centers. The Mobile Libraries blog provides good information to its readers
about products, applications, research, news, and trends in this arena. Of
course, e-books have been getting a lot of attention lately, and there's
also information on reference services through text messaging Sending short
messages to a smartphone, pager, PDA or other handheld device. Text
messaging implies sending short messages generally no more than a couple of
hundred characters in length. and the integration of mobile technologies
with education (to name just a few topics the blog addresses). Is your
library's Web site mobile-ready? What do you know about search tools
designed for mobile devices?

CAROLYN SOSNOWSKI is manager of SLA's Information Center and also the
association's e-learning manager. She has more than 13 years' experience in
libraries, including six-plus years at SLA.
