This paper outlines a multi-year initiative to develop an Internet of Things (IoT) environment in Western Michigan University Libraries for research and development, and to prototype and implement IoT applications and services. This enabled a growing hands-on experience with the IoT using the “Library as Lab” approach. Collaboration and engagement with various campus units were essential.
