Experiencing “iPads for All”: Results from a Library-Wide Mobile Technology Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Libraries have become iPad enthusiasts on a global scale. Librarians use the mobile device in all aspects of their work, and they are an ever-present part of our patrons' lives. As a result, there is a growing need for all library staff members to be familiar with the technology. This presentation will explain Boise State University Albertsons Library’s use of mobile technology, specifically iPads, and the internal shifts that occurred as the library made mobile devices accessible to all library employees. Attendees will explore practical issues faced when implementing the “iPads for All” approach, strategies used to encourage the adoption of the technology, creative uses of the device in work situations, and other outcomes observed to date. They will also have an opportunity to use iPads to participate in a mobile technology service.
