D101 - Adapting Libraries to the Internet of Things

10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
Channing Wong, Technology Systems Specialist, Marin County Free Library

It seems like the Internet of Things has been upon us for years now. There has been a big push by vendors, everyone from appliance manufacturers to electronics and networking vendors, on the adoption of the Internet of Things. However, who are the real adopters? How will it affect library services, and what do libraries need to support these adopters? Wong covers smart homes/spaces, personal devices (FitBit type devices), sensors and systems (maker type of systems such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi), what we can do with the Internet of Things, biometrics health, energy savings and the smart grid, agriculture and gardening, automating home life, shopping (iBeacon), and more. She addresses what the library needs to address to support a mobile world, including workshops for the public on security and privacy, technology and infrastructure considerations, and improving workflow and library services.
