Mobilary is a project of the Chicago Public Schools Department of Libraries & Information Services. Its purpose is to provide recommendation for the implementation of mobile technologies in our district's school library programs to successfully impact teaching and learning. Through the collective experiences of our librarians combined with action research and data collection, we will develop a body of best practices and knowledge related to these technologies. Included in this project will be:

  • Training materials on various mobile technologies
  • Recommendations for circulating and managing mobile devices and digital materials in the library
  • Vetted educational resources to be used on mobile devices

A special focus of Mobilary is to share information gleaned from our "iPads in the Library" grant provided with support from CPS Technology Services - Technology Education and our VITAL grant.
