      • According to the Library Success Wiki, mostly academic libraries.
      • http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title=M-Libraries
      • Some public libraries:
      • Some even have iPhone and Android apps!
      • Shows the bare minimum – simplicity!
      • Fewer images
      • Different domain name?
      • Test on different phones
      • Examples: mobileawesomeness.com (click on “gallery”)
      • 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
      • Here’s one that’s free and ad-free (for now) – winksite.com
      • Sign up/sign in
      • Use Dashboard to create/edit site
      • Make sure you select “disable advertising”!
      • Add a logo/background; customize colors
      • Click “Homepage content” to edit
      • Rename channels/turn channels on or off to customize menu
      • 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
      • 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/
      • Library Anywhere!
      • From LibraryThing and Bowker (Beta)
      • Not free -- $150 for school libraries + $50 for additional locations
      • http://www.google.com/gwt/
      • Converts an existing Web page
      • Doesn’t always work, or work very well!
      • mobiThinking

      • http://mobithinking.com/showcase
      • Examples of great mobile sites
