Using PDAs in Libraries Webcast

Title: Using PDAs in Libraries
Date and time: July 18, 2006, Noon - 1:00 PDT

There is no charge for Infopeople webcasts. Pre-registration is not required. Infopeople's funding limits attendance at live webcasts to anyone in the California library community. If you are outside California, please do not register for the live event. However, you are welcome to see the archived version the day following the webcast.

Here is more information about the July 18 webcast

"Now that PDAs (personal digital assistants, e.g. Palms, Pocket PCs, Smartphones) and other mobile devices have become commonplace, more and more library users expect to use their PDAs to access library services. Are you ready to meet this new demand? This webcast will explain basic PDA features and offer a wealth of ideas for providing wireless services to PDA users in all types of libraries. Real life examples of libraries that are currently providing successful high-level services - including PDA content, PDA-friendly Web pages and OPACs, and circulating PDAs - will be highlighted.

This webcast will also explore ways for library staff to integrate PDAs into their own day-to-day operations, such aspoint-of-service reference, and inventory via PDA. You'll learn everything you need to know to get started using this convenient new technology.

Speaker: Collen Cuddy. Colleen Cuddy has an M.A. in American and English Literature from New York University and an M.L.S. in Library Service from Rutgers University. She is currently the Assistant Director for Library Systems at the Ehrman Medical Library, New York University where she leads the library in PDA implementation as well as directing the library's integrated library system and the NYU School of Medicine's Alumni Digital Library.
