Presentations from the Hot Topics Discussion on "Taking Mobile to the Next Level"
The MARS Hot Topics in Electronic Reference Discussion Group was held Saturday, June 26 at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington D.C. Our topic was "Taking Mobile to the Next Level" and we had presenters from four libraries who are doing new and cool things with their mobile sites. Among the topics discussed were interactive maps, QR codes, dynamic hours information, and mobile interfaces to databases, as well as discussion about how to make these features go live when your library has limited time and resources. About 50 people were in attendance and a lively discussion followed the presentation.
