Today's challenge is delivering services to smartphones, eBook readers, and tablets to users on the go who now view more content on mobile devices than desktop and laptop computers. CDs and DVDs are becoming passé, eBook sales outpace paper books, and users increasingly download music, movies, and books from iTunes and Kindle, storing their purchases in the Cloud. This online conference will address the technical issues related to pushing library content and services to mobile users. Topics to be addressed include selecting and creating eBooks, building mobile-friendly websites, selecting and developing apps for library users, and circulating library materials through mobile devices. Our list of speakers includes librarians, academics, and business trendsetters. Amigos members and non-members, join our online conversation and be a part of this informative, interactive June 8 event. It’s difficult to keep up with changes in mobile technologies, so spend time with us June 8th to bring yourself up to speed. Seating is limited and early bird registration ends May 25, 2012. Both individuals and groups are welcome. Recordings will be available to all registrants. To learn more and to register, visit the conference website at http://www.amigos.org/tech_conference.
