Abstract

At the first international M-Libraries conference in 2007 it was clear that many libraries were keen to explore the potential of mobile library services, but none of the delegates attending reported having asked library users what sort of library services they might want to access from mobile devices, or which mobile devices they were comfortable using. When I had the opportunity to take part in the Arcadia Programme at Cambridge University Library, I opted to investigate how library users access and interact with information when they are on the move. The key questions posed to students were “Do you use mobile devices?” “What do you use them for?” and “What would you want to access from the library?”
