Smart Library Tracking Experiment

More than 250 Next Library participants accepted to join the Smart Library experiment with tracking of where they went and stayed in Dokk1 during the festival days 11 – 14 June 2017.
Each of these participants got a personal beacon in their nametags. 
You turn it on by one click and see a small green light. You turn it off by a click and see a small red light.

The Smart Library Tracking experiment was carried out in collaboration with Alexandra Institute
The technology is based on Bluetooth Low Energy beacons as activity tracker and 29 monitoring sensors in Dokk1. The application software and the sensors are designed by Alexandra Institute. 

The tracking were be displayed online on big screens in the conference venue in Dokk1. 

The experiment was part of the project Smart Library. The purpose of the project is to get new, factual knowledge about users and occupancy in library spaces. The goal is to optimize user experience, interior design, wayfinding, opening hours, facilities, programs and services in library building – based on factual data about library users.

We test various methods to collect and research data about users in library buildings. We test and compare data from technology and anthropological methods. 
The Next Library tracking test is special as the participants are library professionals and not ordinary library users. We hope to get insight and discussions about goals, means, outcome and privacy issues.
