Trends in Mobile Tools

NOTES

Megan Fox, Web and Electronic Resources Librarian at Simmons College, presented. Slides of her CIL talk and a good deal of other useful information at http://web.simmons.edu/~fox/pda/
Megan’s talk seemed to contradict what we learned from Harvard students at recent focus groups, who said they do not go online on their mobile devices to obtain library info because 1) the cost and 2) they take their laptops everywhere and use them via wireless to access info on the web. More details on focus groups to follow.

QUESTIONS

Do you use your PDA to find information online?

Is there information on the HCL site that you would like to access from your mobile device?
