M-libraries: Libraries on the Move to Provide Virtual Access, edited by Gill Needham and Mohamed Ally, Facet Publishing, London, 2008.

This is a collection of articles based on the First International M-Libraries Conference. There are a lot of thoughtful contributions and it is a good place to start, but inevitably in a fast-moving field it will soon be dated.
