Webinar: Knowledge in Your Pocket: Mobile Technology and Libraries
October 9, 2013
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern
Event webpage: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2013/webinars/mobile



Mobile technology has become the preferred method for connecting to the Internet, especially for busy library patrons, faculty, researchers, and students. To meet this need, many publishers are adding mobile options to their resources, either through an app, site optimization or other platforms. How are libraries managing the various options now available for their users? How are librarians keeping up with this modern trend and what skills are necessary to deliver enhanced user services?  Join NISO for the October 9 webinar on Knowledge in Your Pocket: Mobile Technology and Libraries to learn about these issues and more.

·         Using Mobile Technology for Assessment, Data Visualization, and Advocacy – Rachel Besara, Assistant Librarian, Strozier Library, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida
