Your Mobile Device and Research

This guide will help you learn more about accessing library resources on your smartphone, tablet, or mobile device.
There are three basic ways of accessing library content on your mobile device:

Mobile sites are websites that have been designed to be viewed on a mobile device.  These are accessed through your device's web browser (for web-enabled devices). The CSM Library website is designed for use on mobile devices, as is our OneSearch catalog.

Some eBook sites require you to Read in Browser.  This means that you need to have an active Internet connection to read the eBook, as opposed to downloading the entire book to your device.

Apps are downloadable applications that will show up on your mobile device's home screen. In some cases, you will also need to use a login or access code (like your library card number) to access the resources via our library's apps.  Apps can be found in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
