Transforming Services: iPads, Ebooks, & Tablets

A session at Internet Librarian 2013

Tuesday 29th October, 2013

3:15pm to 4:00pm (PST)

Nicole Hennig, Independent UX professional, Apps for Creatives

Hennig begins this session with a look at various multi-touch, multimedia ebooks that create learning experiences for all types of readers, including people with disabilities. She examines the book as iPad app and the potential for use in innovative library programs and services.

Maoria Kirker, Reference & Instructional Services Librarian, Creighton University
Rick Kerns, Head of Technical Services, Reinert-Alumni Library, Creighton University

Kirker and Kerns demonstrate how librarians at a medium-sized private university developed, designed, and assessed the implementation of iPad kiosks as service points within the library. Wireless tablets are compact alternatives to the traditional computer, but there are some complications. Speakers highlight these complications as well as the solutions developed.
