Library Apps on Your Smartphone

A number of relevant applications have been listed below, but the list can never be exhaustive as new "Apps" are becoming available regularly. If no price is mentioned applications are free of charge. Sometimes special settings have to be used to consult journals and bibliographies that the library subscribes to.

Also the M-Libraries wiki offers a wealth of information on mobile interfaces and applications

Smartphones and Tablet PCs (such as iPad) can also be used for scientific ‘content’. On forums such as the 'Android market' or Apple’s 'App Store', special 'Apps' (Applications) can be downloaded through the mobile network.

Through these special applications, publishers such as Elsevier with 'Sciverse Sciencedirect’ and Nature Publishing Group give access to their journals. Even personal alerts can sometimes be set up. There are also applications that can interface with bibliographies such as PubMed, WorldCat or Sciverse Scopus.

And, finally, some publishers and other providers, such as Cambridge University Press and JSTOR, have not created their own App but maintain a separate website that can be optimized for mobile devices.
