Location-Aware Library Services
Creative Commons license
I've been musing about location-aware library services. What would you like to see libraries offer? Here's some ideas that come to mind:
- Your <reserve item> is ready for pickup
- <Library program> starting in 10 minutes
- Check out these Hot Titles now
- 3 public access computers are available now
- Next open study room is in 45 min at 3 pm
What else? Share your ideas and suggestions? Are these annoying or useful?
Do you know of any libraries offering location-aware services?
