With an increasing number of UNR users with hand-held devices, such as tablets, eReaders and smartphones, they want to be able to view, read and explore library content on their personal devices. How well do UNR Libraries' e-resources play on these devices? Inspired by Apple Stores display and customer service model, librarians at UNR collaborated to create the @One eReader Bar where users can explore various handheld devices and learn what is possible, including making use of library e-resources via eReaders. With staff on hand to help, users are able to get assistance with devices they own, as well as discover what is possible by using a range of eReaders. In addition to acquiring several devices, this group researched, tested and tracked each device and how it worked. We shared the findings with each other, designed an eReader Bar LibGuide, trained additional staff, and created informational materials to help users navigate the current world of eReaders in the context of the Libraries' e-resources. This session will cover the process from start to finish and discuss the results of this eReader pilot project.
