Mobile technologies are having a growing impact in libraries. Vendors including EBSCO, Gale, OCLC, and others are increasingly developing for the mobile market.

We are in a period of transition; some libraries already provide extensive mobile services, while others are deciding where to begin. Many librarians are developing mobile literacy skills to better serve users.

As part of our effort to better understand the current state of mobile technologies in libraries, we are again surveying public, academic, and other libraries in Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

Thank you for filling out our short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PJD35FX , which should take about 10 minutes. Please fill out the survey by Wednesday, December 18, 2013.

Results will be presented at the Online Northwest Conference, February 7, 2014, and subsequently online. 2014 results will be compared with 2012 results to see what changes, if any, have occurred in mobile use in Northwest libraries during that time.

Please contact us if you have questions about our study.
