We just got our first hit on one of our finding aids from a mobile device (well, the first one we know of, anyway). So it made me wonder: has anyone looked into or thought about the question of displaying finding aids on mobile devices? Wikipedia's mobile-accessible version (http://en.m.wikipedia.org) provides an interesting model, with a stripped-down display and collapsible sections (which I know some people are using for their finding aids already). See for example http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Hartigan or http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Palin .
