Tangible Interfaces, Digital Library

The ISNM Tangible Archive is part of our Future Library initiative for enhancing physical libraries with advanced technology. It was developed within the Digital Library course in Summer 2004. The Tangible Archive is an electronic system in the McLuhan Documentation Center. Visitors can browse through the collection of past and current ISNM projects by picking physical objects, equipped with electronic (RFID) labels and placing them onto the 'smart desk'. Each object is designed as a metaphor for the respective project and triggers the project web page documentation.
