Integrating iPads and Tablets into Library Services

Part 1 of 2-Part Webinar, presented March 14, 2013 by Rebecca K. Miller, Heather Moorfield-Lang, and Carolyn Meier.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Two presentations from the American Library Association on all aspects of using tablet computers in libraries. Very comprehensive and include lots of ideas for usage, apps, sample policies and user agreements and case studies from many different types of libraries. Part two contains the academic library case studies. American bias but lots of useful general information.
