Title: Methods for applied mobile digital library research: a framework for extensible wayfinding systems
Author(s): Hahn, James F.; Twidale, Michael B.; Gutierrez, Alejandro; Farivar, Reza
Subject(s): Mobile mobile wayfinding Google Android phone iPhone
Abstract: Navigation within the physical library building can be supported with mobile computing technology; specifically, a path suggestion software application on a patron’s mobile device can direct her to the location of the physical item on the shelf. This is accomplished by leveraging existing WiFi access points within a library building as well as supplementing wireless infrastructures with additional wireless beacons for collections-based wayfinding.
