Title: The 21st Century Mobile Library: Refining the Concept of the Anywhere, Anytime Library within the Global Context
Author(s): Emanuel, Jenny
Subject(s): Library Global Communication
Abstract: Libraries increasingly are moving services online in order to meet the global shift towards a information that is available anytime and anywhere. Many tools are now available to facilitate this process, including online subscription resources, proxy servers, and online repositories. The growth of open access resources such as journals, theses and dissertations, and electronic books and images have further accelerated the idea that scholarly information can be available online. There are also tools such as Zotero, Delicious, and Really Simple Syndication (RSS) that aid library users with their research, and libraries should promote and utilize these tools. Finally, a discussion of mobile library interfaces will be brought forth as the next generation of the online library.
