Mobile computing is rapidly becoming an important part of everyday life. With a user-centered, practical emphasis geared to the non-technical librarian, The Anywhere Library: A Primer for the Mobile Web approaches the creation of a mobile-optimized library Web site as a process rather than simply as a product.

The authors guide readers through the process of mobile Web development by providing numerous examples of site design for a variety of different devices, planning and decision-making tips and sample code. The book also serves as a guide for the future, with resources and tips on iteration and revision. Taking the mystery out of designing, planning and launching a mobile library Web site, The Anywhere Library is an invaluable resource for librarians everywhere.

"The Anywhere Library is a great place for academic librarians to start seeking direction on where to begin when developing a mobile site. Although this book is geared specifically toward academic librarians, non-academic librarians can glean useful information from it, too."
--Journal of Library Innovation
