The mobile website for the Library Learning Commons provides access to many great library resources including:
- Contact information
- Study Room information and Reservation Form
- eBook databases
- Research Databases
- Library Catalog
- Social Media
Accessing the databases through the mobile site is similar to the process on the full website. Most of the databases linked through our mobile website are the full database website option. There are two that are linked to mobile website, ProQuest and EBSCOhost.
We searched for vendors who offered mobile websites, so we could better optimize the user experience, however, not many databases yet offer this option.
Of the research and eBook databases we offer, there are four with mobile options, and two of those are mobile apps. We opted to incorporate the databases with mobile sites (ProQuest and EBSCOhost), but not the mobile apps (ARTstor and ebrary). After testing the apps, it was found that they were insufficient and confusing.
All of the databases offered through our mobile site are fully functioning and provide the user with on the go options for research and access to eBooks.
