eBooks, mobile

Learning Objectives

Understand how different eBook formats, collections, and platforms work with different mobile devices.

Develop communication strategies directed at library users around the mobile capabilities of different eBook collections and platforms.



eBooks hosted on academic platforms have varying download capabilities. Knowing those download limits and which mobile devices will work with which platforms is not easily ascertainable to patrons. This presentation will provide strategies that will help librarians easily disseminate this information to patrons using library systems and tools including LibGuides, ERM, and more.
