At MacEwan University Libraries we understand the importance of providing our virtual library space in a framework that is optimized for mobile devices. Many of our students use mobile devices on a regular basis and most of them have attempted to access the library’s resources on their mobile device. Statistics inspired the library to invest in developing a mobile optimized environment so that students and faculty could easily access and consume library resources.

This poster will illustrate how the library integrated content from the EBSCO Discovery System, functionality from the Integrated Library System, and data from the library’s website into an iPhone Application. Future plans for mobile frameworks will be explained, as well as statistical analysis and rational that supports the direction and goals of the project. Learn what virtual services integration means at MacEwan University Libraries and why it is important to the next generation of user experience design initiatives in libraries.
