Apple Inc. has sold more than 500 million iPhones, iPads, and iPodTouches. Library patrons are increasingly coming to libraries with the expectation that their Apple devices will work flawlessly with library services-or that they can find an iPad to use at the library if they don't have one of their own. Libraries and librarians today are expected to be adept with the latest technology and to be able to apply it to popular use as well as scholarly research. Using iPhones and iPads: A Practical Guide for Librarians offers library professionals a clear path to Apple readiness.

The success of this book comes from the detailed practical information supported by step-by-step guides, examples and references for obtaining further information. This book is recommended for anyone working in a library who wishes to learn more about the capabilities of these devices within a library setting. * Australian Library Journal *
Using iPhones, iPad, and iPods provides an in-depth look at how patrons are using iOS devices, and how libraries can make resources compatible for these devices. Additionally, Matthew Connolly and Tony Cosgrave provide detailed information on how to offer and lend iOS devices to patrons, and how these devices can be valuable tools for library staff. Using iPhones, iPad, and iPods is a valuable resource for libraries implementing or planning to implement iOS devices into library services. -- Ben Rawlins, assistant library director & digital services coordinator, Georgetown College
