Smartphone sales eclipsed PC sales for the first time in late 2010. Some analysts predict mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common web device worldwide by 2013.
Designing for mobile web experience offers a new set of challenges and opportunities for libraries. We need to better understand our users, plan for mobile-friendly content, ensure contextually relevant information, and collaborate with technology partners. On Monday April 23rd, join us to learn from colleagues who are taking their libraries mobile. Light snacks, coffee, and tea will be served.
The following distinguished panelists will discuss their own experiences setting up a separate library mobile site.
Dave Bretthauer, Webmaster, University of Connecticut Libraries
Amy Deschenes, Library Technology Specialist, Simmons College Library
Bobbi Fox, Digital Library Software Engineer, Harvard Library
Remlee Green, User Experience Librarian, MIT Libraries
Edward Iglesias, Systems Librarian, Burritt Library, CCSU
Maura Keating, Reference Librarian, Bryant University Library
Carli Spina, Emerging Technologies and Research Librarian, Harvard Law School Library
