Module 10: Mobile Information Environments

Tech

Description

In this module, we will explore the impact of mobile technologies on our services. These include mobile devices/applications and tablets. All of these technologies share a common ground: portable, everywhere access. Mobile technologies and applications can also transform the process of discovery for ourselves and our users. Not only can access occur anywhere, but the possibilities for learning and sharing creative endeavors grows.

The guest lecture from #hyperlibMOOC is a very unique presentation from Jan Holmquist, Director of Development at Guldborgsund-bibliotekerne, a public library situated in the south eastern part of Denmark, Europe. Jan explores the implications of mobile technologies for libraries and demonstrates mobility in action. Please view this video playlist. It was recorded in 2013 but the ideas resonate still, as does Jan’s creativity. Jan is also creator of 23 Mobile Things.
