  • 3.  According to the Library Success Wiki, mostly academic libraries.  http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php? title=M-Libraries
  • 4.  Some public libraries:
  • 5.  Some even have iPhone and Android apps!
  • 6.  Shows the bare minimum – simplicity!  Fewer images  Different domain name?  Test on different phones  Examples: mobileawesomeness.com (click on “gallery”)
  • 7.  We want fast, free and easy! There are several sites where you can design a mobile site. Unfortunately, most have ads or a monthly charge. Examples:  Zindadoo.com  Mobiforge.com  Wirenode.com
  • 8.  Here’s one that’s free and ad-free (for now) – winksite.com  Sign up/sign in
  • 9.  Use Dashboard to create/edit site
  • 10.  Make sure you select “disable advertising”!
  • 11.  Add a logo/background; customize colors
  • 12.  Click “Homepage content” to edit
  • 13.  Rename channels/turn channels on or off to customize menu
  • 14.  Be sure to link to your mobile site from your full site:http://winksite.mobi/librarysite/mlk  Or buy a domain name (as low as $2-3 a year for a .info), then do a redirect to your mobile site
  • 15. Ideally, your site would automatically detect the iPhone/Blackberry/etc. and send user to the ideal site However, this requires coding/scripting that’s way beyond me. But you can try this site: detectmobilebrowser.com/

  • 17.  http://www.google.com/gwt/  Converts an existing Web page  Doesn’t always work, or work very well!
