Technology for the Information Commons in a Special Library
Nancy Allmang, Rosa Liu
Recently, Information Commons has become a buzzword with two meanings--a gathering place for collaborating and sharing new technologies, or a virtual spot for disseminating intellectual information. This case study highlights technologies utilized by a special library to provide its customers with both. Hear how the library upgraded its wireless laptop lending program to a WiFi Protected Access network and added a PDF/OCR scanning station and Instant Messaging reference. Learn how it is introducing federated searching, a knowledge management project to create a digital library, open-access journals as ejournals holdings, and new e-resources.
