Featured Podcast:

Anywhere, Anytime: Library Access in the Palm of Your Hand, presented by Tina Weiss at the 2010 AJL Conference in Seattle, WA.

The use of mobile devices in libraries is an ever-growing area of development. With the advent and broad usage of mobile devices (PDAs, iPhones, etc.), the demand for and the ability to use these devices in library settings continue to grow. Issues to be addressed include: library policy with regard to mobile devices, ability to use in the Judaica framework (i.e., character support for mobile application or catalog accessed by mobile device), a look at the uses, needs, and desires of university/graduate students with regard to availability of information in mobile format, and a general look at the use of mobile devices in higher education institutions.
