What educational institutions are facing today are the requirements of increasing numbers of learners who are described as nomadic. The nomadic learner has specific requirements, not all of which include specific mobile devices or technologies, but rather a support system or infrastructure which allows easy access to information in a convenient form as the nomad moves from place to place. Across the education environment a shift of focus is occurring - 'learner demands, the technology supplies seamlessly'. This shift challenges libraries to examine their service delivery and to focus on the implementation of relevant standards.
