Mobile-Friendly Library Resources


Below is a list of CityU library websites and databases which are optimized to run on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. There are typically three “levels” of mobile access:

  • Mobile-friendly (page scales to size of screen, often features clean layout and easy navigation)
  • Mobile version (mobile-specific interface; sites often display the mobile version automatically to smartphones)
  • Mobile app (application available for download to use the site on a mobile device)

Each resource below is labeled according to its level or type of mobile access.  If you have any questions, please email
