Jeanne Le Ber
Emeritus Faculty

The Wednesday, September 7, 2011 Library and Information Technology Forum features Amy Honisett, Peter Jones, Jeanne Le Ber and Nancy Lombardo speaking about Hot Mobile Devices: Tablets and eReaders. Please join us in the Spencer F. and Cleone P. Eccles Health Sciences Education Building, Room 1750 at 12:05-1:00 p.m. for this program.

Program Description: Current hot mobile devices include Tablets and eReaders.  The Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library has purchased a number of tablets and eReaders to provide our patrons the opportunity to try these latest mobile technologies. This presentation provides an overview of the library’s tablet/eReader project, introduces the basic features of the iPad, Xoom, Nook and Kindle, and reviews some favorite apps.  The devices are WiFi only, and require a wireless network in range to work effectively. On campus, the devices can easily use UConnect and UGuest WiFi networks.

Devices will be available for show and tell after the presentation.

e-Readers: Kindle, Nook, iPad, Xoom

Please join us to learn more about these devices and how you might check one out.
