Abstract
Libraries globally are exploring ways to deliver the myriad of quality information resources available to their users – via mobile devices. As well as focusing on documents (with the inherent problems associated with reading on small screens), Southern Cross University (SCU) Library has explored ways of accessing and converting key documents to audio form, so that students and staff have an alternative way of engaging with academic literature.
