Special Interest Group
inaugural meeting on Wednesday, September 14, 2005, from 3:00 to 4:30 at METRO's
office at 57 East 11th Street, 4th Floor (between Broadway and
University Place, near Union Square) in Manhattan. This SIG is for librarians,
from all types of libraries, interested in PDAs and other emerging handheld
computer technologies (e.g. smart phones, tablet PCs), and exploring
innovative ways libraries can use these technologies to enhance staff
workflow, provide patron services, and support patrons who use PDAs.
At this inaugural meeting we will use "UI Current LIS Clips: Personal
Digital Assistants (PDAs)"
compiled by Sue Searing as our jumping-off point for discussion.
Since this is our first meeting, we'll also spend a little bit of time
getting organized, finding out where people's interests lie, and
exploring topics for future meetings.
Whether you are already using a PDA, smartphone, tablet PC, or are just
curious about these gadgets, I hope you'll join us!
