Mobile devices in teaching and research: how do libraries support this? Mlibs event

Mobile devices in teaching and research: how do libraries support this? Mlibs event | Medical Librarians Of the World (MeLOW) | Scoop.it
Mlibs event - Mobile devices in teaching and research: how do libraries support this? (RT @evidencebase: New #mlibs blog post: Mobile devices in teaching and research: how do libraries support this?

 

"Discussions focussed on challenges to implementing mobile technologies. These included:

- cost of vendor provided services including costs for ongoing upgrades
- decisions on whether separate mobile sites should be developed or whether a single point of access would be provided regardless of device used for access
- variability of availability of mobile friendly apps from vendors
- in some areas technology is ‘ahead of the law’ in this area and mobile allows the possibility of services which currently are not legal
- the possibility of an institution using a service that it subscribes to as it is tied into that service when a free app might actually serve the purpose more effectively
support issues around free apps
- the need for user education in the mobile area – one cannot assume that people know how best to use mobile services to support their learning or research because they know how to use mobile technologies in other contexts


Two key messages from the session were:

- There was a general consensus that institutions needed to embrace mobile technology or risk the services that libraries might provide to support teaching and research not being fully exploited as users access other services through mobile devices
- The quality of content delivered was of paramount importance regardless of the medium of delivery"

It is a challenge for online medical texts to truly "be up to date" hence why medical students and doctors have to source information from a number of sources. In the future it may well be that only the best in this business survive.
