Mid-America Association of Law Libraries - Oklahoma City, OK - October 15, 2016

Computer technology has advanced from mainframes to desktops, then laptops and palmtops and is now moving onto and into the human body by way of wearable computers. The volume of wearable computing devices will grow from under 1 million units in 2014 to 178 million in 2019 dominated by smart glasses and smart watches.
In this session we will share our findings on how wearables will impact academic libraries and how librarians can adjust their spaces, resources, and their mindsets to these technologies.
