SXSW EDU 2020

Designing Information Delivery of the Future

This is a story of how artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality can transform the academic library into a hybrid space. The library becomes a network of digital connections between physical objects. A network that recommends resources based on personal needs, links print resources to multimedia, embeds interactive tools to enhance knowledge, turns the focus on making discoveries rather than looking for them, and so on. And while we’re at it, we’ll fight fake news too.
