[edit] Mobile Library Web Interfaces

There are a variety of techniques for creating mobile web content. Some institutions just offer a text-only view of their regular site, some create a secondary interface designed specifically for mobile devices, often with separate style sheets for different devices. The most successful mobile interfaces don't try to offer full functionality but provide access to the essential bits that users are more likely to need via a mobile device

Note: some mobile interfaces are viewable from a regular browser, some "device detection" and are only viewable from a mobile device, and "apps" involve downloading an application to the device.

  • Duke Mobile: iPhone app and web interface (uses device detection) for the entire Duke system (not just the library). The iPhone app includes access to some of the library's digital image collections.

[edit] ebook devices & apps

Amazon's Kindle and Sony's Reader are currently the most popular dedicated ebook readers. However, the iPhone/iPod Touch is often touted as having potential for being the most popular ebook reader due to the fact that it's a multi-functional device.
