New: University of Virginia Releases iPhone App; Includes Access to Library Resources & Augmented Reality Feature

The University of Virginia has released an iPhone that includes 22 subapps.

One of those subapps includes access to a number of library resources.

It also provides an augmented reality feature that can be used when on the U.Va. campus in Charlottesville, VA.

Btw, U.Va. also offers a mobile web app as does the U.Va. Library.

From a WAMU (Washington DC) Story:

The free program, called the 'The Good Ol' App," offers 22 subapps. You can look up sports scores, search for library books, browse for courses and access the student directory. It will even let you listen to fight songs and cheers.

But the feature UVA is boasting most about allows users wandering around the campus to pull up information about any building they pass. When viewing Newcomb Hall, for instance, they have the option of pinpointing the building on a map and learning about its history and design. The University says it hopes to launch versions to run on other platforms as well.

The complete report is available in Windows Media and Real Player formats.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    Information assets are in the hands of the right people to safeguard them but the wrong people to manage their exploitation concludes an influential new study. As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.
