Well, if you haven’t already checked out the online schedule, signed up for an account to create your own personalized schedule, and bookmarked the mobile app for it, then that should be Job #1. The most up-to-date schedule information is found in this electronic version, so it’s really a must-have for conference-goers.

If you plan to use public transportation, you will want to check out the Greater Cleveland RTA’s mobile apps. Some of the useful services provided include maps, stop times, and notifications.

For general information about Cleveland-area news, weather, sports, and entertainment, make sure you install the Cleveland.com app. Also available from the Cleveland.com apps list are several apps pertaining to specific Cleveland-area sports teams, such as the Browns and the Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.

Interested in history? (Aren’t all archivists, to some extent?) Then consider installing the Cleveland History app. Developed by the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University, Cleveland Historical lets you explore the people, places, and moments that have shaped the city’s history.

You can also find Cleveland area cultural info in apps from FieldTripper and the Cleveland Museum of Art’s ArtLens.
