A proposal to support ubiquitous libraries

Willian Valmorbida, Jorge Luis Victória Barbosa

Abstract


Ubiquitous computing aims to make tasks that depend on computing transparent to the users, providing resources and services anytime and anywhere. This paper proposes a computational model to support ubiquitous libraries. The model provides appropriate information and tools to the librarian to maintain resources and services in a library, as well tools that allow offering better services to the library users. We developed a prototype that has been evaluated by thirteen volunteers in the Library of Centro Universitário Univates (Univates). The results showed a good acceptance of the model.

Keywords: Ubiquitous Computing, Mobile Computing, Ubiquitous Libraries, Intelligent Systems.
