Many libraries have been lending laptops for years and some have begun to lend ebook readers. Might the iPad be next? In this session Julie Jones, Liaison Librarian for Human Geography and Urban Planning at McGill University, detailed the potential opportunities and limitations that iPads present for libraries. Her material was gathered through a review of the literature, a survey of innovative uses of iPads in libraries, and the results of a recent evaluation done at McGill University’s Humanities & Social Sciences Library on the use of iPads for library service provision and lending.

But the search for information is more complex than that and remains unsupported by existing technologies that focus primarilyon tuning search algorithms.
