NFAIS Webinar: Portable Devices and Mobile Users: A New Era for Information
Delivery and Access
One of the hottest areas in R&D today is the development of personal reading
devices that serve an increasingly mobile population. This highly
competitive arena is driving innovation in both the format and delivery of
information resources, offering publishers an opportunity to be creative and
breathe new life into even the most traditional information tools for a new
generation of users.

NFAIS will hold a 90-minute informational Webinar, Portable Devices and
Mobile Users, on December 16, 2010 at 1:00pm EST.  Maureen Kelly, Principal,
Content Kinetics, will open the meeting with a brief history of book
technology.  Jill O’ Neill, NFAIS Director of Communication and Planning,
will then discuss the reading experience, including an overview of today’s
established user interfaces and navigational approaches and how users can
customize their own experience. The meeting will then take a look at the
development of e-reader technology, from first to third generation and
beyond, current content delivery channels, and the markets for e-readers and
e-publications. And in closing, the meeting will focus on why all
information providers need to pay attention to the development of portable
reading devices so that they can re-shape their content to offer an
enjoyable and satisfying user experience – on any platform, anywhere!
