Personal electronics such as tablet computers, ebook readers, MP3 players, and more are now a common part of our information interactions in the library world. Customers are checking gadgets out from us, asking us for content that can be loaded on them, and at times just wishing that we could help them use them more effectively.
This webinar will give a broad overview of personal electronics in libraries, focusing on iOS and Android based devices and their management, from both a user and staff perspective.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
- Understand abilities and limitations of both iOS (Apple) and Android systems
- Have a set of tools to explore in management of both
- Know where to go for help with personal electronics
This webinar will be of interest to anyone that provides services in or around libraries, to either users of the library or to the staff of the library.
