Personal electronics such as tablet computers, ebook readers, MP3 players, and other devices are now a common part of the media infosphere in the library world. Patrons are checking gadgets out from us, asking us for content that can be loaded on them, and at times just wishing that we could help them use them more effectively. This workshop examines current popular gadgets, talks about what’s on the near horizon for personal electronics, and takes time to answer common questions about the best way to deal with gadgets at your library. Since personal electronics aren’t designed to be used in library environments, it also discusses how to find a workflow and management process that makes sense in your situation.
