O, and this is on libraries using mobile technology, not on Mobile Libraries as in the tradtional bus type sense. 😆 I wonder what the HTV licence holders think of the use of that term…
This add came through my inbox. I’d like to go to my local, but I am doubting I will get there, as it looks more focused on tertiary institutions, and also I just can’t see us [my library] getting to the point of implementing anything any time soon. [Hint hint, feedback please from anyone 🙂 ]
