Abstract

Library resources are increasingly available via either mobile applications or mobile websites. The various licensing, authentication, and content models-not all of which are patron-friendly-are ever-changing. Librarians must familiarize themselves with the models offered by publishers and vendors, checking license agreements to ensure that mobile access is included. It is important to inform patrons about new and updated mobile resources. Resources for keeping up with vendor options include listservs, vendor web pages for librarians, social media, and professional conferences and meetings.
