Beacons at Collegiate!?

There is a pilot project under way to install beacons in Collegiate library to form part of a self guided tour. Beacons are small devices that transmit to Bluetooth enabled devices information the user may find useful, such as where they are, what’s nearby etc. Predominantly they are used in retail however we are working on developing a self guided tour using this new technology and will hopefully have it up and running in time for the start of term. In the longer term we’ll be developing this at Adsetts library as well.
Beacons are currently used in the university in Cantor and Charles Street. So if you’re out and about with a Bluetooth enabled device check it out! You’ll need an app installed on you phone called “physical web” that you can download for both Android and IOS devices. Keep and eye for updates!
