How to move your iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive. If you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on your Mac, you know that the first thing iTunes does is back it up (unless you've told it not to). Depending on the size of your device and how much data you have stored on it, this can gobble up dozens of gigabytes of space. Did you know you can move those backups to an external hard drive? You can, and we can walk you through how. How to save space on your Mac by moving iPhone and iPad backups to an external drive We've already gone over how to move your iTunes library to an external hard drive to save space, but did you know that iTunes may still be gobbling up space on your hard drive? Hard drives on Macs are getting smaller as more and more systems use solid state storage, and our iOS devices are getting bigger. Unfortunately, iTunes doesn't give us an easy way to move those backup files to an external drive.

To learn more about the best apps for all of these purposes, see my book, Apps for Librarians: Using the Best Mobile Technology to Educate, Create, and Engage. “Hennig compiles here a practical guide on mobile apps that hits the target audience of “librarians from all types of institutions.” This well-organized, thorough list, confidently navigates the cluttered world of mobile apps….. Verdict: An essential reference tool for any librarian looking to stay relevant.” – Paul Stenis, Pepperdine Univ. Library, full review in Library Journal, Jan. 2015 “A resource brimming with appealing mobile applications, Hennig’s text holds promise for libraries still venturing into high-tech learning. Early on, the author notes that expanding technology puts a new spin on librarianship with opportunities to engage patrons one-on-one or in workshops.” – Mary Ellen Snodgrass, excerpt from review in VOYA, February 2015.

Developing Adaptable, Efficient Mobile Library Services: Librarians as Enablers | Ariadne. Mobile devices such as smartphones, iPads and tablet computers are rapidly proliferating in society and changing the way information is organised, received and disseminated. Consequently the library world must adopt mobile services which maximise and adapt to these significant technological changes.

What do library users want from mobile services? How can libraries adopt new, innovative mobile initiatives? How can libraries use their advantage of being technological intelligence centres to forge and create attractive new mobile services that meet the needs of users effectively, since many such users are now armed with smartphones when commencing their academic experience?

Users' needs in a mobile library service at Leeds University Library were assessed through a combination of both qualitative and quantitative methods and analysis in the form of focus groups and online questionnaires.

Gnod - The Global Network of Discovery. How to Store Your eBook Library Online On the Cheap. After stripping the DRM from their ebooks, the biggest concern for any ebook lover is how to store an ebook library so it is safe, secure, and easily accessible. For many that means storing their library online so it can be accessed from anywhere. There are many options for online storage, including (as a reader reminded us yesterday) buying your own NAS and setting it up a file server on your own home network. One could also set up a LibraryBox, but that is more of a local solution than an online one.

And in any case, I for one prefer to look for the cheapest options available. So here's a quick survey of the free service tiers for the major cloud storage providers. The tl;dr version is that Amazon and Google each give you 15GB of storage. I just need a space to put my files so I can sync them every once in a while, but not everyone is so easy.

Amazon Cloud Drive Amazon only has the two paid tiers. As for free service tier, Amazon only gives free storage to their existing customers: Box. Sydney TAFE eLearning Moodle: Log in to the site.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: the best writers, be it your favorite authors or those that write for Smashing Magazine, don’t do it alone. Often, they work with an editor (or two), who will help them coalesce their words into something more compelling or easier to understand.

Having worked with several editors — and having been a technical editor myself — I’ve really come to appreciate this aspect of the writing process. Refinement is an essential aspect of any creative process. As refactoring code can make a program more logical and efficient, editing a text can allow an underlying idea to be more clearly stated, or make a piece more enjoyable to read. I’m always on the look out for tools that can help me improve my craft. When I heard about Editorially1, a collaborative writing tool designed with Web writers in mind, I immediately signed up.
