"...a seminal contribution...an essential, core contribution to Library Science reference collections."
- Midwest Book Review


"...a topical guide for information professionals in all sectors. These include policy makers, researchers, developers, publishers and suppliers. Students of library and information science and newcomers to the profession will also find it an invaluable resource. The book reads easily; bibliographies appearing at the end of each chapter can prompt further reading, and a useful index concludes the book."
- Online Information Review

A brand new edition of the highly successful M-Libraries series, this draws together cutting-edge international contributions from the leading authorities in the field. Based on the proceedings of the Third International M-Libraries Conference held in Brisbane in May 2011 it explores the variety of work that libraries are doing across the world to deliver resources to users, via a growing plethora of mobile and hand-held devices.

The main strands of discussion include:

  • mobile services and their development
  • mobile users, their behaviour and requirements
  • emerging technical developments including new platforms, devices and applications
  • strategy and infrastructure developments at national level
  • reflections and feedback on new service models
  • local innovation.

Readership: Information professionals in all sectors, policy makers, researchers, developers, publishers, suppliers, LIS students and new professionals.

2012; 256pp; paperback; 978-1-85604-776-0; £59.95

Also available as an eBook (ISBN: 978-1-85604-918-4)
