Abstract

Abstract: New York City is the place that never sleeps and being mobile is critical: greater than 50% of the students at the 21 colleges of the City University of New York carry some type of mobile device. We have developed a mobile-friendly interface for our Aleph web OPAC, are developing texting from the catalog, and are investigating the use of tablet/laptop (running Windows 8) for library staff work (e.g., mobile reference with the full GUI application, collection development and inventories, circulation desk ‘line busting,’ and other professional librarian uses.) The audience will hear about our experiences, learn how to accomplish similar tasks on their campuses, and participate in a discussion about the challenges and rewards of providing mobile Aleph services to students, staff, and faculty.
