Hybrid-Libraries: Advanced systems and services for access to physical-virtual information sites
The goal of this project is to study the user interaction with hybrid information domains, e.g. combinations of conventional and digital libraries, through a common user interface. This research is based upon recent developments in computer technology, such as wireless networks and mobile computing. We plan on creating a prototype based on reusable technologies and novel services in order to study phenomena of the interaction between users and the several aspects of a hybrid information environment. This system, coded under the name HAL (Hybrid Academic Library), will be installed in the University of Patras' academic library.
