Presentation at PLA’s Virtual Spring Symposium

Today I had the opportunity to co-present, with Christopher Baker, at the PLA Virtual Spring Symposium. We addressed several of the issues surrounding mobile access, and how libraries are facing these challenges, with special emphasis on the trials and tribulations we see locally at our library. A few small technical glitches aside, I think it went reasonably well. We made an effort to keep the talk grounded in real-world experiences and discuss realistic options given finite staff and resources.

We mentioned several surveys and tools, and I want to list them here.
