Abstract

Navigation within the physical library building can be supported with mobile computing technology; specifically, a path suggestion software application on a patron's mobile device can direct her to the location of the physical item on the shelf. This is accomplished by leveraging existing WiFi access points within a library building as well as supplementing wireless infrastructures with additional wireless beacons for collections-based wayfinding.
