    Create a mobile library – with a book bike! I used this project to write up a ten step plan on how to bring books to the people, as opposed to relying on people coming to the books. My project also touches on how this is a cost-efficient way to create a new library branch that is accessible to all, while also informing the community about all of the fun stuff going on at the actual physical branch:

    We will convince the Mendocino County Library Advisory Board (LAB) that:
    • by creating a mobile memory lab;
    • they will help people learn to use digitization technology;
    • which will allow them to preserve their memories in digital format

    Planning for Wireless Printing and a Print Release Station

    Mobile devices keep us connected to the Internet at all times. Our phones are mini-computers in our pocket and “provide great conveniences for our work and life” (Zhang et al., 2014, p. 1846). The goal is to provide wireless printing service to the community from any mobile device and have print release software so the user can see what they are printing before they print; this will result in fewer errors. Printing will become a self-service; the user will be able to cancel the print job or pay and print.

    Convince library staff and administration that by offering wireless printing and a print release station, they will be providing a much-needed service to the community, which will increase library usage because the library is here to provide needed services.

    Convince the community that by coming into the library for printing services, they will be able to easily print from any mobile device, which will make it easy for them to print quickly because the print job will be sent to the printer via any mobile device or from home. It will be ready to approve, pay, and release as soon as they get to the library.
