Abstract

Emerging and innovative technologies: IE University Library reinventing higher education

The IE Library serves international students, academics, researchers and senior executives in the education programs of the IE University and IE Business School, Spain. These users demand access to data and value information through the technology and devices they use. IE is a pioneering institution in Europe and around the world, in the development of innovative learning models, such as the WOW Room, Window to the World. The IE Library anticipates the latest technological trends and integrates them into the user experience, offering new formats and environments to provide an innovative, diverse and disruptive learning environment as an essential part of the current digital transformation in higher education. This paper describes technologies we have implemented such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, immersive reality, sensory immersion, gesture recognition, humanoid robots, mobile app, and gamification. These initiatives have totally changed our user experience and makes information discovery more intuitive, accessible and fun.
