@Hand: I Warned You This Was Coming!

M.J. Tooey

Welcome to this special edition of Connective Issues highlighting the HS/HSL’s April 21st symposium, "@Hand: Mobile Technologies in Academia and Medicine." Earlier this year I wrote about the 2010 Horizon Report which identified mobile technology as a breakout technology for the next year. I mentioned our symposium was coming on April 21st. And now it is almost here. The planning committee has put together an outstanding program with a stimulating keynote speaker and sessions focused on practical applications in academia and medicine. There will be vendors. There will be prizes. Visit the web site for more information about this exciting day. I will see you at the symposium, mobile device in hand!

HS/HSL Invites you to the @Hand: Mobile Technologies in Academia and Medicine Symposium

@ Hand: Mobile Technologies in Academia and Medicine

On Wednesday April 21, 2010, the Health Sciences & Human Services Library will be hosting an all day symposium, @Hand: Mobile Technologies in Academia and Medicine. The day will consist of a keynote speaker, panelists, and vendors addressing the emerging and evolving uses of mobile technologies, such as smart phones and e-readers, in clinical and academic settings. We hope that attendees who attend for part or all of the day will gain a better understanding of mobile technologies and how they can be used in innovative ways.

This event is free, and advance registration is not required. The symposium will be held from 9:30 am to 3:15 pm at the SMC Campus Center, followed by a closing reception in the Gladhill Boardroom on the Library’s 5th Floor.
