The new mobile, in particular smartphone, capabilities have led many libraries to adapt webpages for use with mobile devices, offer new reference services, and embrace new offerings such as quick response code tagging. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the ways the proliferation of smartphones has changed traditional library services and the new and exciting technologies libraries now should embrace. The paper also discusses the privacy concerns surrounding the ubiquitous nature of smartphones.
