"In what seems like an instant, mobile electronic devices have significantly influenced and changed many aspects of modern life: socialization, entertainment, and the way business is conducted, both in and out of the workplace. This program concentrates specifically on mobile technologies, analyzing how their prevalence is changing the way people interact with information. Joe Murphy...from Yale University, leads this fascinating and timely exploration of the mobile technologies landscape. Beyond showcasing the devices, this program focuses on how information professionals find innovative ways to put these devices to use in librarianship, both to extend and strengthen traditional library services and create deeper and far-reaching connections with patrons."
