In this pre-conference workshop SUNY Canton librarians will discuss their experience with incorporating mobile technology into the information delivery process. Cantonâs iPad program has opened up alternative avenues for library staff, teaching faculty and students as they explore new models for teaching and learning. This interactive workshop will address the innovative programing and opportunities that iPads allow for transcending traditional models of library outreach, such as mobile reference, digital humanities, statistics recording, and interlibrary loan. Reflecting on their experiences with iPads in an academic library Jennifer and Mike will show you how to unleash the portable possibilities.
