As is true for many libraries, the Bialik College Library print collection is shrinking and the online resources are growing. The library is also changing from “being the place where the books are kept” to a busy, flexible and interactive learning space. One opportunity and challenge that comes with this transition is how to create meaningful two-way links between the online and print collections. Furthermore, how can these two parts of the collection be linked via a patron’s mobile device without the need to type in a catalogue or portal URL. In short, how does the library establish the ‘Internet of everything’.
