Title: Location-based recommendation services in library book stacks
Author(s): Hahn, James F.
Subject(s): Wayfinding location-based iPhone iOS Dashcode recommendation services
Abstract: This project suggests a model for location-based recommendation services that enables greater access to print and electronic resources. Includes a synthesis of previous work in basic and applied collections-based wayfinding incorporating Library and Information Science (LIS) literature on user context and system recommendations. Provides computing workflows necessary to implement a library recommendation service based on user location. iPhone Software Developer Kit templates are leveraged for modeling data and interface prototypes. Use cases and user models are developed. Project report identifies problems that will need to be solved before implementation of the production-level recommendation service and suggests possible implications the system may have on reference and instruction services.
