Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the article is to review possible new technologies which might enhance a Center for Digital Learning, Teaching and Scholarship at the library.

Design/methodology/approach

Opinion piece.

Findings

There are several cutting edge but increasingly affordable technologies which could attract students to the library and raise the library’s profile.

Research limitations/implications

It would be interesting to design a study of library use and determine if the addition of unusual technologies had any effects.

Practical implications

Given the affordability of some devices, there is little risk involved in proceeding with establishment and furnishing of a Center for Digital Learning, Teaching and Scholarship at the library.

Originality/value

A literature search for drones and libraries retrieved no scholarly articles, but did bring back one or two news pieces about circulating drones at the University of South Florida.
