IMHO > A *Most* Impressive Webinar and Mobile Initiative !!!


... [T]he Mobile Learning at the Library, ... focus[ed] on the recent efforts that librarians and staff at Albertsons Library have led in order to meet the needs of a mobile, and ever changing, world.


Learning was transformed at the Boise State University campus when faculty and students began acquiring mobile devices. The library responded to this transformation by being a leader on campus, developing mobile websites for both the library and the university, expanding wireless connectivity within the library, providing instruction using mobile devices, acting as embedded librarians within mobile learning courses, and through the addition of collections that focused on user-driven acquisitions. You will learn about our best practices, lessons learned, and ideas for the future. Join librarians and libraries around the globe for this intimate conversation about mobile learning and the transformational value on libraries.
