The Third International m-Libraries Conference > 11-13 May 2011 / Brisbane, Australia


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.

  1. It is a very good conference for us librarians and i look forward to sending my abstract and attending hopefully if my Institution meets the requirements.Mobile Libraries and learning is not yet developed in developing countries. Am happy to inform all that we in Uganda are privilaged to be having the SeaCom network that passes near Busitema University Library but lack funds to be connected. This facility of mobile libraries is important for library users.
