The development of wireless technologies over the past twelve months has seen rapid expansion of the types of services that can be provided to mobile phones and personal digital assistants, with much more to come. Libraries must acknowledge the change in communication methods as a long term opportunity and begin planning for expanding market share by developing different types of services that take advantage of the new medium. The City of Joondalup Libraries have trialled a wireless website that offers basic services in order to better understand the challenges of the future.
