Mobile what?

This was a cute video that I liked; I found that the importance of mobile technology in libraries. There are so many different apps out there on smart phones that can be very useful in the library. Cell phones are portable, light and almost everyone has one. They all have apps that are useful in the library; one of them is the different ereader apps out there because libraries have ebooks online now people can download them at the library or at home and have instant access to them on their phones. Another really awesome one is the Goodreads app. People like to know if what they’re going to read next is good. This app provides a barcode scanner that directs them to the review of the book. I like to use this when I go to the library to find my next book to read. I have also heard about libraries having mobile check out systems which also facilitates the process as well. Technology is changing and libraries are too, but librarians are definitely staying relevant to everything that is changing.
