library/mobile: Tips on Designing and Developing Mobile Web Sites
Mobile applications can support learning by making library resources
more ubiquitous, by bringing new users to the library through increased
accessibility to the resources libraries offer, and by creating a new
way to enhance connections between patrons and libraries. This increased
use of mobile phones provides an untapped resource for delivering
library resources to patrons. The mobile Web is the next step for
libraries in providing universal access to resources and information.
This article will share Oregon State University (OSU) Librariesí
experience creating a mobile Web presence and will provide key design
and development strategies for building mobile Web sites.
