E304: Appy Times! Virtual Tours & Tangible Communities

2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Jed Phillips, Head of Technology & User Experience, Ames Free Library
Oleg Boyarsky, CTO, Library Automation Technologies Inc.
Val Boyarsky, COO, Library Automation Technologies Inc.

A simple audio-video tour app, used innovatively, has engaged a little community in a profound way. Phillips presents the lowcost and high-impact process by which his community was granted the power to explore its historic 1883 library through streaming mobile content. With a single download, digital immigrants and natives alike have anytime access to GPS-triggered guided tours and virtual visits of their library architecture, its collections, its Italianate gardens and statuary, and greater community history. Practical information on the various resources and steps necessary to replicate this hugely successful project are outlined. The next presenters examine the most popular digital signage tools and strategies, discuss what is a truly “state-of-the-art” approach, and share real-life case studies.
