Imagine approaching a new piece of technology and receiving a personal demonstration, entering the library’s learning commons and being instantly immersed in the infinite possibilities of its flexible space, walking by a display case and watching the items burst free in an explosion of audio, video, and images. Imagine a library where every sign, display, piece of technology, and room has been hacked to merge the boundary between the physical and virtual worlds, offering patrons the opportunity to go beyond walking through stationary signage, resources, and displays to a full interactive experience. Through free mobile software, Emporia State is evolving the library culture by changing the way its patrons see and interact with the physical library space. Come hear and see their story.
