The UCSD Libraries now have a new mobile-friendly website that works on most smartphone browsers! Just point your browser to http://libraries.ucsd.edu/m/
The mobile site features the information you need on the go – our hours, contact info, directions, as well as several ways to ask us questions and finally a list of research tools from our collections that we’ve tested out on mobile devices. There is also a link back to the “regular” website, which does work on phone browsers but is more difficult to navigate on the small screen.
Among the research tools: links to mobile-friendly databases IEEE Xplore and PubMed, and links to publisher apps from ACS, AIP, IOP and Nature.
Please note, some of the research tools might not work optimally from all smartphone browsers, and some of them require you to be connected to the UCSD network–especially if you want to access full-text or PDFs of articles.
Please let us know what you think about this new site and if there is additional information you’d like to see from the libraries when you’re using your mobile device.
