Hello, Network Members,
Please join us on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 1pm Central time as Heather Holmes and Susan Fowler present: Mobile Technology from the Perspective of a Hospital Librarian for our Lake Effects series. Two librarians in different settings have integrated mobile resources into their work. Get their perspectives on current barriers and proposed solutions to meet the needs of their patrons.
