The Handheld Librarian 2009 Virtual Conference

The Handheld Librarian 2009
An Online Conference About Mobile Library Services

More people than ever are using mobile devices for a wide variety of purposes including communication, internet access, text messaging, and entertainment. It is important that libraries provide services on these devices as use increases.

The first ever Handheld Librarian Online on July 30, 2009 is the place to learn about these and other topics related to using wireless and hand held devices in your library. The program, sponsored by Alliance Library System, LearningTimes and InfoQuest, will include a variety of ways to collaborate, network and learn from a great group of experts in the field.

In addition to live interactive webcasts, we will have a collection of available resources, discussions boards, and access to the recording of all live events for one year after the conference.
