Mobile Device Poll
What type of mobile device do you use to access the Library's resources?
Lifehacker's App Directory is a constantly maintained and updated directory of the best applications and tools for computers (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and smartphones (Android and iPhone).
This guide contains lists of the mobile resources available to you through the Talbot Research Library as well as information on how to access and use them. Please note that librarians will not install apps on your mobile device or tablet.
Occasionally, a resource may charge a fee for the downloading of an app, or for adding additional features to a free app. The Talbot Research Library is not responsible for any charges you may incur when purchasing mobile apps.
Tablets vs. Smartphones
Mobile access to the Library's e-resources differs depending on whether you are using a smartphone or tablet device. Tablet users (iPad, Kindle Fire) can access nearly all of our e-resources just as they would from a desktop or laptop computer. In addition, there are some apps for tablets available from the App Store and Android Market that can run without an internet connection. Smartphones, however, require apps or mobile-optimized versions of Web resources. In some cases, not all content available on the full version will be available from the mobile version.
