Mobile information literacy

While at the reference desk, have you ever had a student thrust her phone at you and ask, “Do you have this book?” Or, while teaching an information literacy class, have you had to tell students to put away their cellphones? It seems that our students can’t live without their smartphones anymore. But who can blame them? Most of us have grown accustomed to having information available at our fingertips. There are hundreds of thousands of apps available that let users do everything from looking up restaurant reviews to accessing Wikipedia in a mobile environment. As an increasing number of mobile apps and Web sites are being built by database vendors, such as EBSCO and WilsonWeb, it’s time to leverage students’ addiction to smartphones and teach them information literacy in a mobile setting.
