  10. 10. Publisher apps are great but… Users have to know who publishes the journals they read & download the right app They are often designed for browsing Need to link with resource discovery (e.g. Primo, Summon) & reference management (EndNote, RefWorks) software May not be available for all platforms Off-campus access is limited (so not a truly mobile service!)
  11. 11. Primo mobile There is a cut-down version of Primo designed for use on mobile phones But it only contains the Library Catalogue, not the full ‘Library Catalogue Plus’ (so the resource discovery element based on Metalib/SFX is missing) So people have to use the full web interface to access the full range of content
