Our patrons are increasingly integrating mobile and web-based technologies
into daily practice. It is essential for librarians to investigate,
experiment, and utilize these technologies to meet users where they
are. Topics to be discussed include: podcasting, social networking,
GPS, collaborative tools, devices (iPhones, Googlephones (G1), smartphones,
Blackberrys, iPods, Kindles), and methods for keeping up to date.
