Project overview

As mobile technologies develop and become more integrated into our daily lives, libraries are utilising them in innovative ways to support key functions such as gaining access to resources and helping users discover more information. Many are experimenting with functionality such as developing mobile websites, specific library apps, or utilising mobile technologies such as using location awareness and cameras for scanning QR codes, barcodes or enabling virtual reality.

The aim of the m-library community support project as part of the JISC Mobile Infrastructure for Libraries programme is to:

provide a mobile library community support project to help support and engage the emerging m-library community by reviewing and synthesising existing research and  evidence-based guidance

The project runs from November 2011 until August 2012 and is a collaboration between Evidence Base and Owen Stephens Consulting.

The blog will be used to share relevant information relating to m-libraries as well as being used to source potential case studies and share best practice from the community.
