Opening the event

Opening the event

As part of the JISC-funded m-library community support project, Evidence Base (with support from Owen Stephens Consulting) organised a one day event for those interesting in mobile technologies in libraries. The event opened with a keynote presentation from James Clay, ILT & Learning Resources Manager at Gloucestershire College, who gave an interesting overview of the current situation. The rest of the event focused around a series of lightning style presentations (5 minutes for each speaker) and breakout sessions (45 minutes each). The breakout sessions covered the following topics:

  • Building mobile-friendly sites with responsive design (see blog post)
  • Augmented reality for special collections (see blog post)
  • Mobile devices in teaching and research: how do libraries support this? (see blog post)
  • Resource discovery on mobile devices (see blog post)
  • Bibliographic management on mobile devices (see blog post)
  • Developing a mobile strategy for the library (see blog post)
  • Mobile devices in the physical environment in libraries, exhibitions and galleries (see blog post)
  • Delivering existing library-owned content (e.g. historical maps) on mobile devices (see blog post)
