Description
This report examines some of the issues facing the University of Alberta libraries in relation to patron experience and awareness, and offers technological solutions. Because each academic institution has specific needs according to what technologies and policies they have already adopted, and because the LIS field has complex needs that are constantly evolving, this report is not representative of all needs in academic libraries. After assessing the individual needs of the library, a literature review was conducted to uncover different technologies that are available, as well as the technologies that are still developing and will emerge in the next decade. In this report, the need for mobile app support and image-based social media channels will be explored, not only for the immediate benefits the library and the academic institution as a whole, but also for their ability to adapt and stay relevant in the future of the university.
