No notes for slide
  • Beth will provide some background info on the LITAC position paper, how we never work face to face so this could be interesting, and to beg forgiveness as we stumble our way through the presentation.
  • Please stand up if you have a cell phone. (Stay standing)
  • who has a cell phone?
    Stay standing if you use your cell phone to access the Internet. (Keep standing)
  • Stay standing if you use your cell phone to access the Internet via your cell phone on a daily basis. (everyone can sit)
  • Poll audience for top 4?
  • make note that the original ipod is no longer being updated - most likely dead in 2011
  • We have:  
        Adam - iTouch, iPad, iPhone
        Beth - Palm Pre
    Droid, Dell ????, Samsung,  Blackberry
     
    Will research for connectivity
    not dependent on constant power source
    portable
    specific os
    multiapplications and functions
    fits in the pocket (except the stupid iPad)
  • "Foursquare is a mobile application that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. It is a friend-finder, a social city guide and a game that challenges users to experience new things, and rewards them for doing so. Foursquare lets users 'check in' to a place when they're there, tell friends where they are and track the history of where they've been and who they've been there with."
    The Library Component - connecting super patrons to the library who are connected to larger social networks.
  • Dropbox  - sync and share files from mobile to desktop to mobile again.
  • Pricing based on audience size. Up to 30 people free.
    Set up poll: 
    multiple choice, free text, or goal poll.
     
    Determine how people can reply: 
    text messaging, via smartphone w/web access, twitter, etc.
    Easy peasy!
  • The City of New York celebrated Internet Week 2010 by displaying giant QR codes in Times Square. Scanning the codes would pull up information relating to the specific agencies being featured.
     
    QR = "quick response"
    Explain what a QR code is...
  • Evernote - 
    works with mulitple mobile devices and tradtional pcs
  • Your library should consider providing a mobile version of your web site.
    Stripped down version of your website that provides the kind of information mobile users would be looking for on the go.
    IMHO - better to do this than to just style your website to provide a mobile version of all of your website info.
  • Boopsie is a service that will build mobile apps for you, rather than you having to convert your info for mobile interaction.
  • One on the left goes to WLA conference webpage. Could include  codes in books or on library signage that would link to online databases or web sites related to a subject (e.g. Workforce Development website in resume books).
    One on the right is an event listing - could be included on posters, bookmarks, etc. to advertise library events.
    More ideas:
  • Note that mobile content should be different than regular site - watered down to info people want to access via a mobile device (e.g. hours, location, contact info, catalog, etc.).
  • [show and tell with attendees - YES - i'll be bringing a doc camera so we can better demonstrate to the audience!]
     
    Off hand - i can demonstrate Dropbox, OneNote, EbscoMobile and am researching some other mobile devices

    2. 2. The Numbers February 15, 2010 (AP) The number of mobile phone subscriptions worldwide has reached 4.6 billion and is expected to increase to five billion this year... http://www.flickr.com/photos/scallop_holden/2280231658/
    3. 3. In a July 2009 report, the Pew Internet and American Life Project states that African Americans are the most active users of the mobile internet. (http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2009/12-Wireless-Internet-Use.aspx) This concurs with another Pew Report which indicates that English-speaking Hispanics have the highest rate of cell phone ownership, as well as doing more on their phones on a typical day than White or Black Americans. (http://www.pewinternet.org/~/media//Files/Reports/2008/PIP_Mobile.Data.Access.pdf.pdf) These factors indicate that the digital divide diminishes significantly when mobile use is taken into account.
