Abstract


Heidelberg University Library uses mobile devices and has begun lending iPads to its users. The medical faculty in the branch library plays a significant role in this new service model. The tablets on loan are pre-configured with mobile applications specified for medical studies. The new service is part of the library’s broader strategy to improve medical education at the university by providing both faculty members and students services in accordance with constantly changing study conditions.
