Abstract: Libraries play an important role of supporting school education, academic research, and public learning. Recent advancement and popularity of mobile, wireless network and sensing technologies have further provided a more convenient and effective environment for accessing library facilities and resources. For example, students can be guided to learn in physical libraries by mobile learning systems with sensing technologies, or to complete learning tasks with access to electronic libraries via mobile devices when learning in the field. In addition to the learning contexts, the types of learning design could also affect students' mobile learning outcomes. Therefore, it is worth investigating the trends of using libraries to support mobile learning from the aspects of the adoption of sensing technologies and learning strategies. This study aims to investigate the studies published in Elsevier's Scopus database from 2007 to 2016 to address these issues, including the types of sensing or location-based technologies, and learning strategies employed in library-supported mobile learning. From the review results, potential research issues and suggestions to future learning design are provided.
Keywords: mobile learning; sensing technologies; learning strategies; library-associated mobile learning.
