We had a visit from the Director of ARL today at our library.   Many of the questions from the staff and faculty were various forms of the same question ...

"What have you seen at other libraries that would be good for us to do?" 

My question was..."what technologies and services are you seeing that I should consider providing for our students?"

So I thought it would be a good question to ask here.....


In our Libraries, I have MFDs, a plotter, self-service faxing, flatbed scanning and video information boards. 

My question to the community is:  What do you see coming along that would provide an added value to our customers?  New technology that will be a benefit to our students?  What to you offer your students/customers that we all should be providing!


I am looking forward to the users conference to get a pulse of what others are doing but I thought I would get a jump of the subject. 


So what are your thoughts?  Where is the cutting edge of the "new technology" wave?


thanks for your input and feedback!
