Mobile Technology and Academic Libraries : Innovative Services for Research and Learning

CHOICE


Copyright American Library Association, used with permission.

Not only practicing professionals but also advanced undergraduates thinking about their career options will find the concepts and platforms described in this edited volume useful for illuminating mobile applications and deploying them in academic settings. Canuel (McGill Univ., Canada) and Crichton (Univ. of Toronto, Scarborough, Canada) have collected information on various projects at 17 US and Canadian academic libraries where staff have implemented mobile technologies in advantageous ways. Chapter contributors describe the outcomes of projects ranging from website redesign to wearable technologies. Of particular interest is a project at Metropolitan University to revamp their website to be more mobile friendly by using the results of usability studies. Another creative idea is Texas A & M's library-instruction project incorporating student selfies to answer programmed questions about research at the library. Although a monograph may not be the most responsive venue for promoting innovation, this collection offers reproducible ideas about mobile technology that will be useful to those in institutions with technologically proficient personnel. Mobile devices are something that academic librarians must learn to leverage, and as the editors state in their introduction, will enable those who embrace them to extend "the library's walls" to reach students, faculty, and wider audiences. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners. --Debbi Dinkins, Stetson University

Library Journal Review

Mobile Technology and Academic Libraries : Innovative Services for Research and Learning

Library Journal

Coeditors Canuel (McGill Univ.) and Crichton (Univ. of Toronto Scarborough) examine the implications of today's mobile technologies across a spectrum of library services and contexts. They maintain that the evolution of mobile technology poses both "risks and opportunities for academic librarians," who accordingly must seek to understand the impact of such technologies on patron behaviors, expectations, research practices, and learning. This editorial message is given further weight by 17 chapters, which cover practical manifestations of mobile technology such as mobile library websites, selfie-guided library tours, mobile apps for research and teaching, gamification in the classroom, and virtual reality library environments and tools. The effect is an eclectic, specific, and somewhat uncentered portrait of the many ways that libraries are trying to respond to the mobile context while staying true to their core values and strengths. VERDICT A convincing thesis on the importance of mobile consciousness to the future of academic libraries' research and learning services. Recommended for LIS students or professionals looking for practical ideas and case studies.-Robin Chin Roemer, Univ. of Washington Lib., Seattle © Copyright 2017.
