The 2009 Horizon Report placed mobile technologies in a place of primary importance: 

“Higher education is facing a growing expectation to make use of and to deliver services, content, and media to mobile devices …  As new devices continue to make content almost as easy to access and view on a mobile as on a computer, and as ever more engaging applications take advantage of new interface technologies …  the applications for mobiles continue to grow. This is more than merely an expectation to provide content: this is an opportunity for higher education to reach its constituents in new and compelling ways, in addition to the obvious anytime, anywhere benefits of these ubiquitous devices."

It would be remiss for libraries to ignore mobile devices in planning service and outreach.  This companion website to our ACRL 2011 poster takes what you saw in our poster session further.
