  • Right here with me
    • Students “talk” through homework with their handheld devices , which issue alerts when passing a bookstore with material they need to cite . Scanning the title page, this information is instantly embedded in proper citation style with an added endnote. Checking in on location-based services, students locate study team members and hold impromptu meetings without the need for study rooms. Their devices have whiteboards and can share notes with absent members. http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/issues/value/futures2025.pdf
