Workshop – iPad: Reading for Research

by on October 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Presented by
Claudia Engel, Academic Technology Specialist
Regina Roberts, Subject Bibliographer
Carlos Seligo, Academic Technology Specialist

A number of iPad software apps support reading, reviewing, editing, archiving, and sharing documents. The increasing popularity of the device among students and faculty raises questions about the usefulness of those in the context of research: How to manage bibliographies? How to store and share annotations? How to access online academic journals? We will each showcase an iPad app we use for this purpose (GoodReader, Papers, and CloudeOn) and discuss pros and cons. Please bring your iPad and share your experiences.
