Library in Your Pocket – Presentation on Mobile Strategies from EDUCAUSE

I’m prepping for my talk on Tuesday at the NY Academic Librarians Conference and I’m thoroughly enjoying clicking through this EDUCAUSE presentation from David Woodbury (North Carolina State University) and Jason Casden (North Carolina State University) from last January! I am sorry it took this long to get to it.

Take a look:

Students are arriving on college campuses with the ability to connect to the web with a diverse array of mobile devices. However, some online services aren’t a good fit for the small screen, and new services can also be developed that take advantage of the mobile user context. Developers of the NCSU Libraries Mobile site (http://m.lib.ncsu.edu) will share their strategy and techniques for creating a suite of mobile services that are optimized for a majority of mobile web platforms, from iPhones to flip phones. The session will also include a discussion of site usage and promotion as well as plans for future mobile services.
