"From margin to mainstream: mobile technologies transforming lives and libraries."

Mobile technology has transformed so many aspects of our lives: how we work, how we communicate, how we study and how we play. This conference will explore and share work carried out in libraries around the world to deliver services and resources to users via a growing plethora of mobile and hand-held devices.

The m-libraries conference offers opportunity to find out more about the transformation of services, learners or providers because of mobile technology, and hear about the inspiring and innovative projects which challenge current thinking and practice.


Hosted by The Open University and Athabasca University, this event will bring together researchers, educators, technical developers, managers and library professionals to exchange experience and expertise and to generate ideas for future developments.

Keynote speakers include Ellyssa Kroski of the New York Law Institute, United States, Char Booth of the Claremont Colleges, United States, Thomas Cochrane of the AUT University’s Centre for Learning and Teaching, New Zealand, and Steve Vosloo, Programme Specialist in Mobile Learning at UNESCO, France.

This exciting and engaging conference will be held at The Open University in Milton Keynes from 24 to 26 September 2012.

Registration closes on 7th September 2012.
