The conference will explore and share work carried out in libraries around the world to deliver services and resources to users ‘on the move’, via a growing plethora of mobile and hand-held devices.
The m-Libraries conference brings together researchers, educators, technical developers, managers and library professionals to exchange experience and expertise and to generate ideas for future developments.
The third International m-libraries Conference is hosted by the University of Southern Queensland in collaboration with The Open University, Athabasca University, Thompson Rivers University and Emerald Group Publishing.
