SCHEDULED EVENT DATE: Tuesday, November 16, 2011 – 1 PM ET – 60 minutes
Nearly a year after Library Journal‘s Fall 2010 email survey of public and academic libraries, the mobile landscape has changed dramatically. In May 2011, Android surpassed the iPhone as the most popular smartphone platform, demand for eBooks is exploding and patrons can now check books out from anywhere in the library using a mobile device. As a result, many libraries face an unprecedented number of decisions as they seek to embrace the opportunities presented by mobile technology.
Please join Greg Carpenter, CEO of Boopsie and Gary Kirk, President of TechLogic for a discussion on the mobile technology ecosystem, considerations for evaluating and designing web- and app-based solutions and ways librarians can stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving mobile marketplace. Additionally, the speakers will talk about best practices for integrating mobile into a library’s existing infrastructure including RFID security, ILS systems and delivery of ebook collections.
