Free Webinar – Bridging the Digital Divide with Mobile Services

Date: Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Online at
Cost: Free

The exploding popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices provides a unique opportunity for libraries to help bridge the digital divide. These devices are often discussed in the context of affluent populations and academic libraries, yet the demographics of mobile internet users are much more diverse than this, and the potential for mobile library services is correspondingly broad. Join us for this webinar brought to you in collaboration with ALA TechSource, and presented by Andromeda Yelton, author of the January issue of Library Technology Reports on the topic of Bridging the Digital Divide with Mobile Services. We’ll talk about:

  • the demographics of mobile internet users, and why this matters to libraries’ mission
  • real-life examples of online library services aimed at diverse populations
  • mobile friendly steps you can take even with limited time, budget, or expertise
