Emerging Technologies and the Academic Library: How the Internet of Things Fits In (20 minute session)
This presentation will discuss the role of the Internet of Things (IoT) and how the emerging tech is relevant to academic libraries. The NMC’s Horizon Report outlines the significance of IoT for libraries in Higher Ed, and gives the window for adoption to be in the next four to five years. Understanding what IoT is, what other institutions are doing, and evaluating the risks of IoT will be our focus. Join this talk if you want to know how IoT can be integrated into your library and/or to share what your institution is doing about it on your campus.
