Review:

One of the aspects of the text that I most appreciated was that it is a hugely collaborative effort. It gives the heartwarming impression of a profession which is working together to embrace a challenging and exciting development in technology, sharing their successes and pitfalls in an effort to improve the user experience, and to continue to do what libraries have always done - celebrate a plurality of information sources and access methods. -- Australian Academic and Research Libraries In these papers from the 2012 Fourth International M-Libraries Conference, international contributors examine the impact of mobile technologies for accessing information and services in libraries and information centers. Cases from around the world show how libraries are interacting with users and delivering resources via mobile and hand-held devices. Some subjects include the use of iPads for a roving inquiry service, promoting library services through social media, QR codes as teaching tools, designing the library's website, creating a university-wide mobile app, and mobile devices in medical schools. Visual elements include b&w photos, screenshots, process diagrams, and data charts. The book's readership includes students and practitioners in library and information science, along with technical developers. Ally is affiliated with Athabasca University, Canada. Needham is affiliated with the Open University Library and Learning Resources Center, UK -- Reference and Research Book News
