Wed, Sept 7 LIFT Forum — Hot Mobile Devices: Tablets and eReaders

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.
