Application of Mobile Technologies to Libraries
Libraries have always set an example in experimenting with new technology developments, whether it is automation or adopting other information and communication technologies to improve their services. This paper presents an outline of the application and use of developments in mobile telecommunication systems, web technologies (internet/intranet) and geographic systems like GPS/GPRS to provide ubiquitous, user-friendly, personalised and dynamic up to date information services to library users. This new technology will be of great help to libraries towards strengthening their relationship and provide enhanced user experience to existing users. Libraries may well reach out to the new/remote users who were considered unlikely to connect because of absence of a medium. This should be adopted in compliance with the information security policies and standards of the parent organisation.
