Using Mobile Apps
Basement Lab, Law Library
Save the date for the first program in the law library's Fall 2013 Tea Time series. These brown bag sessions are designed for students, but faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
Most of us carry a smartphone everywhere we go. We use apps to get directions to the closest pizza place, check sports scores and update our Facebook status. With the proper apps, your smartphone can also serve as a personal copier; an invisible, portable hard-drive; and—if you can find your files—as a document storage and management device. These apps harness the same built-in functions you use to take pictures of your friend and post them to Instagram, but instead use them in the boring business of legal practice.
Join librarians Virginia Mattingly and Kurt Metzmeier, along with the law school’s Jim Becker, in a short program on how to use the powerful computer in your iPhone or Android to get a little work done--when you are not checking Twitter or playing Candy Crush. The program is informal and there will be plenty of time for questions.
