Mobile devices are increasingly being used to provide libraries with the
opportunity to disperse information at the exact point of need.  "Library in
Your Hand: Mobile Technologies for Exchanging Information with Patrons" will be
presented during the ALA Annual Conference on Sunday, June 24 from 10:30-noon
at the Anaheim Convention Center, Room 204B.

Presented jointly as the RUSA President's Program and the MARS Chair's Program,
this program will explore the importance of libraries supporting mobile
technologies for the dissemination and acquisition of information.  Examples of
such projects currently underway in libraries will be discussed by our panel of
speakers.  Joan Lippincott, Associate Executive Director of the Coalition for
Networked Information, will speak about why libraries should embrace
communicating with patrons through mobile devices.  Kristin Antelman, Associate
Director for the Digital Library at NCSU Libraries, will speak about mobile
initiatives at NCSU including WolfWalk, a photographic guide to the history of
NCSU optimized for mobile devices.  David Lee King, Digital Branch & Services
Manager at the Topeka Public Library, will discuss the social media used to
communicate with patrons at the Topeka Public Library.

Please join us for this exciting program!
