I spend a lot of time playing with the latest and greatest mobile apps, but I'm always most impressed with reference and research apps. The fact that one little app can give you access to so much information is pretty mind-blowing. You can recommend these apps to patrons along with other trusted web tools on your website or at the reference desk. On a tight budget? No problem: these apps are completely free.

This natural tendency to seek reliable, community-validated information sources has traditionally drawn people to libraries for two reasons.

This is great information that can be used to show the amount of technology access and support libraries are providing to their communities. Share with your stakeholders, city officials, and especially, your grant funders! I love seeing proof of all the library wireless access and technology training! --sg
