Mobile Tools

These tools will work best when you are on campus using the University’s WiFi network.  Since these tools will use lots of network data, we recommend you only use them over WiFi unless you have an unlimited data plan. If you are unsure about the details of your plan or your device please contact the retailer or cell phone service, as the library cannot assist with technical issues related to your mobile device.
