Check out this Library Journal article by Josh Hadro which discusses the mobile platforms planned for both EBSCOhost and for Serial Solutions Summon discovery platform.  I found the last two sentences of Hadro’s article to sum up my feelings about mobile services for libraries pretty well:

A frequent complaint is that these services often draw users in through a streamlined mobile portal only to lead them to other site subsections or resources that are unwieldy on a smaller screen, or entirely unusable. As more content providers embrace the mobile medium, however, libraries will be better able to offer both smartphone users and traditional users an equal level of service.
