CW Prototype #1

CW Prototype #1

In the research and development phase of the Collection Wall project, a section of the book wall has become a prototyping area. Prototype #1 is our first attempt to integrate screens within shelves, displaying data from online repositories, and merging digital and physical academic collections. Books and tokens can be scanned for digital recommendations, focusing on master theses and dissertations, and publications by “Best Graduates” (nominated annually by faculties). Historic dissertations are paired with associated physical objects from our Academic Heritage collection, and displayed in vitrines, with AI-generated keywords used to link content.

Access anywhere with Lean Library

When you browse and search the internet for articles, journals or databases you may find content licensed by us. However, if you are not on campus or not connected to the campus network, the website you visit does not know and will not give you access to web pages or publications. Or worse, asks you to pay for access (paywall).
