I have added a collection of Health Apps for mobile devices to the Useful Resources… page. This has been created and developed by Keele University, and is a useful example of a key function of any health library – to enable access via any and all means. As with all library sectors, mobile technology is an emerging force and is something all health library folk should keep a keen interest in. There is very much a clinical feel to ‘apps’ at this time, though commissioners often use clinical best evidence in decision making. This is also something Libraries can step into when looking at developing access to library services. The best example of this I am aware of is from FADE Library though I am sure there are many great examples available.

If you have any resources or examples of good practice – please share them with me!
