Emerging Technology Journal Article

Emerging Technology Journal Article

In September I had the opportunity to work with Emma, a colleague of mine at Carleton University MacOdrum Library. Together we wrote a journal article about developing an emerging technology collection in an academic institution.¬† Writing this article was a great experience in peer-reviewed article writing and something I will treasure as I embark on my librarian career. If you are interested in setting up your own emerging technology collection at your institution please have a look at our article!…

Virtual Symposium- Field Testing the 360-Degree Camera

Virtual Symposium- Field Testing the 360-Degree Camera

So we’ve arrived at the end of the #hyperlinked library! (the explanation mark symbolizes both excitement and sadness as we close this chapter on our MLIS career). For my Virtual Symposium I used the¬†technology I outlined in my Director’s Brief assignment from a few weeks ago, but also commented on a few of the issues we looked at this term such as participatory services and technolust.

Director’s Brief: 360-Degree Cameras in the Library

Director’s Brief: 360-Degree Cameras in the Library

I am working on setting up a library tour in my own library using this 360-degree video camera technology, so this director’s brief will be valuable in explaining the technology to other library staff. 360-degree video cameras allow for videos to be recorded in full 360-degree range, not to be confused with fish eye cameras that distort the picture. This is very similar to something like Google Street view but…

The mobile blogger: a mobile technology reflection blog

Disclaimer: I have done everything for this module (the readings, research, blog post writing and supplemental video) through my mobile phone, inspired by Jan in the mobile technology module. While mobile technology provides easy, on-the-fly access to information and our networked world, I feel that it is not completely up to the quality standards of traditional computing technology. It is close, but not perfect. So like a method actor preparing for a role, I fully embraced mobile technology this week…

CU in the Future: Emerging Technology Planning Assignment

CU in the Future: Emerging Technology Planning Assignment

Throughout the term we have explored ways that libraries have engaged with their users to create more participatory and inclusive library services. Although blogs are not a new technology in the web 2.0 world, they offer academic institutions, who are traditionally seen as rigid and static gatekeepers to information, a chance to create two way communication with their users. At Carleton University MacOdrum Library, I am proposing that we create a blog, CU in the Future, as a way to…
