*LITA Mobile Computing IG meeting*

June 26, Sunday, 10:30 am – 12pm. Intercontinental New Orleans - Poydras
room
http://connect.ala.org/node/137605

*We invite you to the great discussion and 4 short presentations at the
Mobile Computing IG meeting at ALA 2011. *
*Presentations*
*Case Studies: Developing Mobile Access to Digital Collections
*Carmen Mitchell, Loyola Marymount University and Daniel Suchy, University
of California at San Diego

While much has been written and discussed about the development of library
mobile websites, very little of the conversation has focused on mobile
access to digital collections. Libraries and museums spend significant
resources in the effort to identify, digitize, ingest, describe, store, and
display items in their digital asset management systems (DAMs). The latest
challenge for libraries is to adapt and grow our digital collections to meet
the needs of an increasingly mobile user. We will present the findings from
four in-depth case studies of selected institutions and university
libraries. These institutions were chosen because they already offer mobile
services built around their digital collections, and are thus leading the
effort to present them in unique and mobile-centric ways.

*Mobile Services and QR Codes
*Benjamin Rawlins, Systems Librarian, Kentucky State University

As mobile services continue to expand, libraries are looking for ways to
connect users to their mobile content.  One solution is through the use of
QR codes.  This presentation will show how Paul G. Blazer Library at
Kentucky State University has been using QR codes as a way to reach our
mobile users.  QR codes are being used in the library’s online catalog, in
the Mobile Services booklet, and on our library trading cards.

*Maps and Library Wayfinding*
Jim Hahn and Alaina Morales, University of Illinois, Undergraduate Library

Many mobile map-based guidance systems heavily feature architecturally
designed CAD maps for building guidance. While this is a logical first step,
it would also seem to be only a starting place and not the preferred
interface for the users of undergraduate collections. Basic and applied
studies on building wayfinding has found that students approach the library
building with a bookstore frame of reference and prefer distorted maps based
on broad subject areas. This presentation will show the iteration of maps
displayed on a mobile device to help users get to desired items within a
library’s undergraduate collections. Next directions for additional data
points in map-based guidance will be discussed.

*Mobile Learning, Mobile Library: Connecting iPads, a Mobile Library
Website, and Library Instruction
*Willie Miller, Assistant Librarian, IUPUI University Library

IUPUI University Library moved into the mobile environment in 2009 with a
mobile site. Assistant Librarian, Willie Miller took this technology and
integrated into library instruction on iPads. In this presentation, Miller
shares his experiences teaching  with a mobile device in a mobile
environment, changes made to the mobile website based on in-class use, and
some of the surprising feedback he has received from students (they all
don't like iPads, some prefer computers).

*Discussion Topic*

*The Library's mobile presence: what do users want to have on the go?*
Discussion led by Ridie Wilson Ghezzi, Head, Research & Instruction
Services, Dartmouth College Baker-Berry Library

Here at Dartmouth College Library we are in the process of designing our
first mobile web presence for the library. We will discuss the process we've
gone through to this point but focus on the decisions we have made in regard
to what to include on the library's mobile site and what steps we took to
reach those decisions. Our goal is to have this mobile library site fully
operational by First-Year Orientation in September 2011. I think our
experience might be helpful to others as they move in this direction as
well. This discussion will provide an opportunity to share experiences and
questions.
