Metro’s Smart Phones and Mobile Computing Special Interest Group (SIG) is born from the PDA & Handheld Computing SIG. It is composed of individuals from all types of libraries interested in personal digital assistants and other handheld electronic technologies (e.g. smart phone, tablet PCs). Through meetings, events and other shared-learning opportunities, members explore innovative ways libraries can use these technologies to enhance staff workflow, provide patron services, and support users.
There are two exciting speakers lined up for the SIG’s next two meetings.
On Wednesday, February 24, Matt Benzing, Information Technology Librarian, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, will talk about Mobile Versions/Skins for a Library Website.
On Wednesday, May 12, Alexa Pearce, Acting Librarian for Journalism, Media, Culture & Communication, New York University, will discuss Mobile Reference Services Provided by Libraries.
Both meetings will be held at METRO Headquarters, 57 East 11th Street, from 3:00-4:30.
