what was lost, is found

Technology can be marvelous. If this works as demo’d … oh boy!

Ever “lose” a book in the shelves? Ever have a shelver come to you to ask where a book is – because You are the Cataloger and Keeper Of All Knowledge of Where Books Live, then be disappointed because you cannot magically make the misshelved book appear? Well fret no more! The Augmented Reality App for Shelf Reading, developed by Miami University Augmented Reality Research Group is here!

Watch the Youtube piece, then if you going to be at ACRL Saturday, April 2, 2011, please go to The Library’s Swiss-Army Knife: Using Smart Phones For Information Discovery, Content Delivery, and Inventory Management session at 9:45 AM in room 201 B/C.

My little cataloger heart is going thump thump thump! Finally, something that ensures all the stuff is in the right place on the shelf!  It also gives me an inventory of what is physically on the shelf! BONUS! I think the shelf readers might actually enjoy doing shelf reading with this fun tool – it’s almost a game.
