Target Audience: Librarians interested in learning about mobile technology
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify and analyze mobile applications for use in law libraries.
2. Participants will be able to plan the creation of a mobile application.

According to a 2008 report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, "the mobile device will be the primary connection tool to the Internet for most people in the world in 2020." Chances are, many users already use these devices to access websites and catalogs. All types of law libraries must begin meeting the demands of mobile technology, whether by delivering information to an attorney's Blackberry or by enabling students to access library resources by iPhone. This session will introduce attendees to the world of mobile applications. We will evaluate applications of interest to law librarians and their users. The live action demonstration of popular mobile applications will prepare attendees to implement effective mobile interfaces. We will explain the technology behind mobile applications and the steps required to create your own - whether you decide to do it yourself or outsource the project.
