Mobile augmented reality applications for library services

Mobile augmented reality applications for library services Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to introduce mobile augmented reality applications for library uses and next generation library services. Design/methodology/approach – Examples are drawn from museum and archives informatics, computer science applied research, and computer vision research as well as original research and development work from the Undergraduate Library at the University of Illinois. Findings – Mobile augmented reality uses include augmenting physical book stacks browsing, library navigation, optical character recognition, facial recognition, and building identification mobile software for compelling library experiences. Originality/value – The paper suggests uses of mobile augmented reality applications in library settings and models a demonstration prototype interface. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png New Library World Emerald Publishing
