About the Author

Nicole Hennig is an independent user experience professional who helps librarians and educators effectively use mobile technologies.


"In a growing world of mobile technology, Nicole Henning's Apps for Librarians is a timely reference book for those in the library field. . . . Librarians who have not had any experience purchasing and/or downloading apps outside of a phone or tablet's factory setting will greatly benefit from this book. More technologically-experienced librarians could also benefit from this book, especially the Audience and Example sections. . . . Henning uses her expertise to guide readers in the right direction and maintains accessible language throughout each section. . . . Overall, this book is highly recommended for librarians who have not yet incorporated mobile apps into their work, and would like a strong foundation in doing so." - Technical Services Quarterly
