Primary Research Group has published the Survey of Policies to Assure Mobile Device Access to the Library Website, ISBN 978-157440-284-1. The 100+ page study looks closely at the measures taken by academic, public and special libraries to assure that mobile devices – iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Kindles and many others – can access the library website easily and fluently.

Libraries outside of the United States were far more likely than those in the United States to have developed apps for smartphones.

The report from Primary Research Group looks at the development of new versions of websites specifically designed for mobile access, at use of various paid and open source services and product for mobile device access, and at general library policies designed to ease the experience of mobile device users. The report presents highly detailed data on the extent of library website traffic accounted for by mobile devices, the impact on library resource use of the deployment of mobile friendly information products from vendors, and much more. More than 60 libraries contributed comprehensive data and insights to the report, and data is broken out by size and type of library and other useful criteria. The study covers access by smartphones, tablet computers and more.
