iPhone apps for librarians

Many people took our poll about smart phones and librarians. Here are the result on one simple chart:

This isn’t the most scientific survey, it’s just a poll of self-selected readers of my blog. It did help that so many people left comments on my blog and Facebook wall as well as tweets. That added colour to my understanding of the penetration of smart phones into libraries versus students and communities.

Watch for more polls on other similar issues. Suggest anything library-related in the comments!

Also, I don’t know how I missed this blog but I am now subscribing.

The posting that I found useful was this one:
iPhone apps for librarians

It covered and linked to any apps that could be found for libraries and librarians using mobile devices. Other postings before and after this one did the same. Useful. I’ll be reading this one.

    Thanks for posting the results! I’m an iphone user and feel that I am simply lost when I don’t have my iphone. I have used it successfully for library work and will be doing a presentation in a few weeks on the very subject. I’ll be sure to provide a link here!
