Thing #11: Library and Reference (ELM Mobile)
I really appreciated how mobile friendly the mobile version of ELM's website is (particularly since I don't have my iPad with me at the moment and so am using my smartphone). I've definitely been on some websites that AREN'T mobile friendly, so I greatly appreciate the thought, design, and user friendliness that went into the ELM mobile site. One drawback to the more streamlined approach of the ELM Mobile site is that it (obviously) doesn't have all of the features of the full site. One feature missing that I use frequently when using ELM is the A-Z publication list. Granted, this feature would probably be cumbersome to use on a mobile site (particularly on the small screen of my smart phone). It's just usually my starting point when I use ELM.
