Wow, almost 4 years later and I still can't use the iPad app to access our institutional account, but we CAN now access http://m.proquest.safaribooksonline.com using our institutional account (IP-checked, so you'll want to ensure you've got it in ezproxy as well....) This is not really new, as documented at http://help.safaribooksonline.com/view?id=1227, but I wanted to ensure this post was updated...

Carl, my final comment was actually meant to be tongue-in-cheek, as I'm aware this doesn't exist yet; it was just wishful thinking. Really glad to hear you've got more ideas on the subject, and I'd love to help in any way I can!

Oh wow, thanks for the link Cathrine! I dropped an email to the three guys but haven't heard anything back yet.

Thanks Lynn, that app just showed up on my radar as well - it sure looks like it'll do the trick, doesn't it?

Very cool, thanks for building? What would it take to build something like this for Canada (or any other country), or a specific educational institution? Is this something you'd take on, or are there tools to go along with ThinkUp that would allow us to do it ourselves?

Thanks Kari, I have indeed been using it :-)

You *could* use it for that, but for me I'd consider using it more for remote troubleshooting. "Hey Mom/student, go to this site to begin a screen-sharing session and give me the code. Then I'll be able to watch what you're trying to do and can tell you where you're going wrong..."

Sweet, thanks David, though it appears to be a problematic install on the Mac - will give it a go though.

Hmm, looks like the whole webinar archive section on the LJ site is down - I'll keep looking and let you know...

Ronald, I haven't seen any citations like this in my implementation of Summon - got any URLs you can share with an example?

Would if I could, but I won't be able to attend :-( I'll blog from the Advisory Council instead :-)

Yeah, I should've asked before posting it at all, sorry about that. My personal policy is to try not to remove posts once their up, so if you're ok with that, we'll hope that this targets existing customers that might not be on the email list? Thanks Andrew.

I didn't get the same impression, that EBSCO was also trying to lock up the metadata, though if they did I'd certainly agree that it would create problems for the unified discovery services!

Thanks for the link to that post Kevin - I had no idea this had been in the works for so long!

I agree with you 100% - has anyone seen any good examples of digital browsing?
