In 2012 UCD Library received the ANLTC/Swets Research Award, enabling them to explore the state of play regarding app development in Irish and other libraries and develop a couple of demonstrators.

We will briefly summarise: mobile options for libraries including responsive design and library vendor “ catalogue plus” products; a survey of UCD students; a survey of Irish mobile and app progress; case study visits; 2 demonstrators, one using a zero-code cloud-based solution and one following the HTML5 webapp route
