Mobile Forecast: 2016 Promises Major Advances for Info on the Go
by Nancy K. Herther
Although the mobile device is now a pervasive personal technology, it's worth noting that it was just 9 years ago (2007) when Apple introduced the iPhone--the first truly compelling mobile product that would move the industry forward. Mobile innovation has been happening at a very rapid pace for a few years now. Today's smartphones combine communication (how many people still have landlines or long-distance accounts?), the ability to check the time (how many people younger than 20 wear watches anymore?), photography (et tu, camera?), calculation, address books, note-taking, and so many other functions.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
