The rise of tablet computing and the advent of mobile apps are changing the way we interact with technology. The library profession should be embracing these changes. One way this could be done is through the creation of mobile apps—not only for our users, but also for ourselves.
This session will examine existing apps for librarians and will include a discussion of how librarians, particularly catalogers and other technical services librarians might use apps in a daily workflow.
