He shares some of the free tools and techniques to push your historical collection out into your community! The third presentation discusses the next-gen library with a blended virtual and physical space perhaps using a “Double” robot as your surrogate to browse a library rare books collection in a library building while sitting at your dorm, finding information about library hours and maps by scanning QR codes on the wall of the library building, watching instructional videos on how to make double sided copies via Aurasma or Layar apps on your smart phone, or sharing what you are reading from a book in real time with your teammates through Google Project Glass. This is not science fiction; hear how the next-gen library will look as a place to foster learning, sharing, collaboration, and innovation.
