Mobile & Tablet Apps for Library Databases  
 

Hey - you just got a great new smartphone/tablet, but it doesn't seem to work with some of the Mt.SAC resources :-(

Some of the library resources have special apps for mobile devices, see below, and some require special plug-ins. I'll list some at the bottom of this page.

 
Smart phone

Many of our database vendors have begun to offer mobile apps for both iOS (Apple) and Android.

Below you will find links to the "how-to's" from each vendor.

If you experience any difficulty, please feel free to email me, Paul, the Virtual Librarian and I'll do what I can to assist!

Android & iOS:

For the Windows Surface Pro (or any "full" Windows 8.x tablet):
