Title: Mobile Device Applications for Libraries www.bsu.edu/libraries/mobile


1
Mobile Device Applications for Libraries
www.bsu.edu/libraries/mobile
  • Small-Screen Handheld Mobile Device User
    Interfaces for Library Applications
  • Bradley D. Faust, Assistant Dean for Library
    Information Technology Services, Ball State
    University Libraries

2
Discussion Points
  • Continued interest in the Mobile Space
  • Background on the Ball State University Libraries
    Mobile Initiatives
  • Current Mobile Grant Project Overview
  • Computer Availability Phase
  • Mobile Site Upgrade Phase
  • Digital Library Access Phase
  • Other interesting Library Mobile Programs

3
Continued Interest in Mobile
  • Better, faster, higher capacity 3G/4G and WiFi
    networks and handheld devices
  • Price/performance of mobile device ownership is
    constantly improving
  • Expand library resources and information access
    to include mobile device options
  • Images, audio, and video can be easily presented
    on mobile devices

4
Mobile Project Background
  • Began mobile project development in 2004
  • A 15,000 LSTA Technology Grant supported much of
    the development work
  • Outcomes included
  • A mobile device interface to our OPAC
  • A mobile device friendly list of Journals
  • A mobile device friendly library information base
  • Links to mobile device friendly Web sites

5
Mobile Project Background
  • 1st LSTA Grant ended in 2005
  • Minor mobile Web site updates were applied until
    2008
  • In early 2009, we applied for a second LSTA
    Technology Grant - 8,000
  • LSTA Grant awarded in May 2009
  • Development work began in July when we hired a
    Mobile Computing Developer

6
Current Mobile Grant Project
  • Three Phases
  • Computer Availability Module
  • Updates to Existing Mobile Web Site
  • Site redesign to support modern mobile devices
  • MOPAC (mobile OPAC)
  • Mobile Journals - DOA
  • Building a Digital Media Repository (DMR) Mobile
    User Interface (UI)
  • DMR Mobile is based on CONTENTdm

7
Computer Availability Module
  • What is it?
  • It is a tool to allow students to identify areas
    in Bracken Library where computers are available
  • How does it operate?
  • A computer agent installed on each public PC
  • The computer agent reports information back to a
    server where it is used to produce FLASH based
    floor plans, and the mobile UI

  • To work on iPhone and iPod Touch units
  • To work on other Smartphone devices
  • Improve functionality of the existing mobile
    applications
  • Develop a new instructional video structure
  • Update and add links to useful external mobile

Digital Library Access for Mobile
  • Extend access opportunities to assets and objects
    in our digital collections
  • Connect the DMR to an increasingly mobile user
    base
  • Extend the value of online research material
  • Deliver multimedia objects that work well on
    modern mobile devices and networks

18
Digital Library Access for Mobile
  • Context/Challenges
  • CONTENTdm based Digital Media Repository
  • Multiple asset types image, video, audio,
    compound objects, 3D, text.
  • Streaming audio and video how to deliver to
    mobile devices?
  • Application Development
  • App or Web Application?
  • Web Application host?

19
Interesting Mobile Statistics
  • According to Gartner, Smartphone development
    tools fall into 7 categories it is a complex
    space
  • Mobile Device Capacity
  • iPhone 3GS Capacity 16GB
  • Motorola Droid Capacity 16 GB
  • iPod Touch Max Capacity 64GB
