Welcome to the Library Guide for mobile apps and resources. In this guide you will find mobile apps and sites which will help your study and research.

What is an app?

Apps is an abbreviation for application. An app is a piece of software. It can run on the Internet, on your computer, or on your phone or other electronic device. There are apps for Apple, Android and Blackberry devices and they can be downloaded from an app store. Many apps are free and others can be purchased.

What is a mobile site?

A mobile site is a version of a standard web site that has been optimized to be viewed on mobile devices such as cell phones and other portable equipment used to log onto the Internet. They allow access to much of the same content of the original website, but are easier to view on a smaller screen. Mobile sites are free and don't need to be downloaded from an app store.
