Wednesday, November 11, 2:00 pm in Bass Library LO1
Wearable Technology is a hot topic in research and education circles, but what is it exactly and how does it relate to libraries? Is wearable tech another library fad, like QR Codes, Library 2.0, or Second Life- or do we ignore it at our own peril as we did with the mobile computing revolution? Author and librarian Tom Bruno will discuss various forms of wearable technology, discuss the Yale University Library’s experiment with loaning Google Glass, and explore the challenges and opportunities for libraries presented by this fascinating and rapidly-changing field of technology.
Tom Bruno is the Associate Director for Resource Sharing and Reserves at Yale University Library. This talk is sponsored by SCOPA.
