Jenny Hong realized that when library users needed to power up devices like notebooks and tablets, they were confined to outlets scattered throughout the building. She designed the Electric Campfire — a “cubical table arrayed on each side with wireless power outlets,” according to the Harvard Gazette. The intent is to encourage social interaction with other users. The term “library voice” may soon be a thing of the past.
When you know what to search, it’s easy to find a book in the library. But Stacy Morton proposed an innovative way to search a library’s archives, or even an entire city. The idea is that a user can save keyword searches and then receive notifications if they pass near an object that has been tagged with relevant terms.
