De Boer and de Heer talked about a project in the Netherlands they’ve been working on. The StichtingBibliothekenMidden-Frysln and Extelligentsia developed a SocialMediaCaster interactive touchscreen kiosk with an RFID reader etc. that connects what’s in the library with students’ social content and social lives online. Students can bring any library item up to the kiosk and it’s scanned and then other relevant resources, including social media content, comes up on the screen. This is greatly helpful for research projects for the students. They connected to the school’s curriculum and took assessment criteria into account for media literacy. The SMC system connects catalogs of the local school library with other library catalogs nearby. SMC also displays social media content. They’re connected to Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube, and many others. Version 2 has a new data source adaptor to let them connect to the National Library in the Netherlands. This enables searches through all the catalogs through all the libraries in the Netherlands. They also developed ExplorApp, a mobile version. They just launched The Library of Things which they’re looking for other libraries to collaborate on. The ExplorApp demonstrates this concept – it’s meant for use both inside and outside the library.Donahue talked about work that he’s done at Montana State University. There is a diagram of the library building, with stacks of the libraries and read-outs of stacks and the subjects contained within. You can mouse on different floors, and find the whole map of the library’s contents. You can also search for a particular subject, and the library map will light up the stacks with the relevant books. He used Flash, InDesign, and Adobe Illustrator. He animated each stack as a button with basic mouse-over functionality (Sarah’s note: Flash…….noooooooooo!). This helps you for library space planning and redesign, training new staff and student workers, familiarizing students with the extent of the library’s collections. They can also show off “the library” virtually when at outreach events. One of the issues is that collections shift and books move, and as that happens this would have to be redone. They’ve also added QR codes to the endcaps of all of the stacks that gives a specific even further break-down of subjects in that stack.
