Access Library OPAC's through your Mobile Phones


Hottest topic in the public is – Hey which mobile do you use is it Blackberry, iPhone,  or Android ? Mobile IT world has been changed tremendously.   If you see International Telecommunication Union (  day to day developments in IT industry. (Librarians must see this site). International Telecommunication Union estimates that there are about 4 billion live cell phones in circulation today. That's two-thirds of the world's population. As more of these devices come online, making sure that resources--such as OPACs--are compatible with these devices becomes imperative.

It is time to offer library services on mobiles, when I was search Library OPAC  of Library Information Network for Community Colleges using my mobile as well as on the desktop system, it was amazing, unfortunately in India so far nobody has (software vendors) developed a Library OPAC for mobile, of course it may be in developing stage.  Anyway library patrons can access library OPACs from their mobiles.
