Our topic will be "Mobile Catalog Interfaces," and we are currently looking for presenters for this session. Presentations should be approximately 15 minutes in length with 10 minutes for follow-up questions. Discussion will focus on integration of a mobile catalog interface with platforms such as: Summon, Ebscohost Integrated Search, World Cat Local, Endeca, Encore, AquaBrowser, and the local catalog. Suggestions for approaches to the presentations might include:

    Mobile catalog interface design strategies and challenges

    Do mobile catalog interfaces meet end user needs?

    The level of discussion will be determined by the level of interest/involvement of you, the presenter! So please indicate your interest in presenting to Richard Guajardo, Chair, CFFIG (guajardo@uh.edu) by May 28th.
