From the GMR: Free Education Opportunity from the GMR: Information Anywhere class at UIC-LHS

Hello, Network Members!

I wanted to let you know that the class: "Information Anywhere: Mobile Technology, Libraries and Health" will be taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago on Monday, August 15, 2011 from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. This class is free and if you have not taken it before, it's a lot of fun. Here is more information about it:

"This four-hour class is an overview of the plethora of mobile devices available today and how they impact libraries and medicine. We will discuss Apple's products (including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad), Blackberry devices, and Google Android-powered phones. Popular uses and applications for these devices, with particular emphasis on those that make use of the products of the National Library of Medicine will be highlighted. Students will learn what it takes to create mobile applications and websites, and will participate in a hands-on activity to create a simple mobile website."

You can earn 4.0 MLA CE credits for taking this class. If you are interested in registering for this class, please go to our registration page: http://tinyurl.com/gmrregistration. Space is limited to 25 attendees for this class. It will be taught a lot in the region this fall and winter, so if you miss this one, you will be sure to see it advertised again.

Thank you!
