Summary from the publisher:

Tablet computer ownership on university campuses has tripled in the past year, according to a Pearson Foundation survey in March 2012. At the threshold of the Post-PC era, as students' expectations change, reference and instruction librarians are responding with new services. In this issue of Library Technology Reports Virginia Tech librarians Miller, Meir, and Moorfield-Lang offer a collection of first-hand accounts of academic library projects using tablets. Among the projects detailed:

  *   Subject matter librarians roving campus to increase access and usage of online resources
  *   Librarians partnering with faculty of eight academic departments to use tablets in instruction
  *   Industrial design students using library tablets in competitions and design lab work
  *   Workshops that put mobile learning into information literacy instruction
  *   Tablets as a curriculum component in a first-year undergraduate learning community
  *   Cross-departmental library collaboration in planning new services
