The SUL-Mobile Users Group (SUL-MUG) is a community of SUL users of mobile devices such as iPad, Xoom, Kindle, etc. If you use one of these devices for your work, whether for productivity, teaching, reference or to circulate, please join us! You’ll have the opportunity to meet with and learn from other SUL mobile device users. Our meetings are run in the unconference tradition – no set agenda – so attendees can bring up whatever question they wish, demonstrate a cool app they've found, whatever you want or need to talk about, and do this with other like-minded users.

We are changing our meeting dates! The SUL-MUG meetings are now the third Tuesday of every month starting April 16th so as to accommodate as many of our users as possible. We meet in the IC Classroom (Green Rm.166) and start at 10:30 am.

See you then!

Web standards watchers may have heard of the Open Annotation (OA) effort--a Mellon-funded initiative to leverage linked data and the inherent fabric of the Web to assert, store and reuse annotations--by anyone, on (nearly) anything. SUL's digital manuscript efforts provided one of the pilot use cases for the original OA rollout, and we're now hosting one of three international workshops to increase awareness of the initiative.
