Abstract

Libraries have opportunities to enhance traditional library services with iPhones. Searching the iTunes store for relevant apps adaptable or targeted for library use is cumbersome. In the past, librarians have highlighted their resources by developing significant annotated bibliographies and subject guides for their users. The presenters have begun using the program, LibGuides, to produce an appography (annotated subject driven bibliography) that guides users to helpful apps from the iTunes store. We anticipate appographies will be the bibliographies of the 21st century.
