Handhelds and libraries. How can libraries prepare for the wireless and wireline needs of their patrons, users and customers?

Author:

Stephen E. Arnold

Abstract

With its flexibility, which allows real-time, anywhere, anytime connectivity, its scalability and potential cost savings, wireless communication is being increasingly applied in the business and academic worlds. The technology is highly relevant to the information world and libraries should realise that there will be pressure from wireless-connected users to introduce wireless systems. In preparation for turning on wireless access, libraries are advised to undertake a pilot project and to examine all the factors that influence the cost of a wireless system.
