DigitalU: Connecting Washington Libraries
40 Great Apps for Mobile Reference & Outreach
December 18, 2013, 9:00–10:00am PT
The proliferation of mobile apps has changed the ways how we search for and access information. Increasingly, the mobile platforms have become the preferred method of accessing information on-the-go. Librarians and information professionals can harness the potentials of these apps to provide innovative services, mobile content, and outreach. The speakers will discuss 40 apps in the categories of books and reference, business, health & fitness and government information, as well as to explore new ideas on how to integrate these apps into a mobile strategy for mobile reference and outreach. Presented by Richard Le, San Francisco Public Library and Mel Gooch, San Francisco Public Library.
