Friends/

In late April 2010 (04/26-04/28) I plan to attend and hope to present at EMTACL10 > The International Conference On Emerging Technologies In Academic Libraries 2010 in Trondheim, Norway.

I intend to prepare an abstract / paper / presentation about major initiatives relating to Mobile Libraries / Mobile Learning that will be derived from my >>> Research In Public <<< Blog _Mobile Libraries_ and my ongoing review of current and emerging developments in these areas.


The EMTACL10 conference will be hosted by the Library of the Norwegian University Of Science And Technology  (NTNU)

The conference aims to provide answers to the following questions: What can academic libraries do to address change? How can we adapt? Which technologies can/should/must we use/create?"
