On Thursday in the Jefferson West Room at 5:15, I will be discussing the Harvard Library UX Project (formerly Wolbach UX) with anyone interested in UX and interactive technology. To learn more, read about the project on this site. Leave comments below or tweet #cilsur. See you soon.
Today, we installed Library Explorer on the SUR40. Thanks to the Brown Graphics Group, the software is starting to come together. There are still some minor modifications to make but the final version should be ready within the week. A first glimpse of the software is shown below.
We just received 3 Surface tables at the Wolbach Library. The other 2 tables will be delivered to Widener next week, then on to Cabot and Lamont Libraries. After some initial delivery confusion, unpacking and partial setup, one Surface is now running with only Bing. In the user manual, there are many more apps displayed. We got the Bing only version apparently. For now though, it works and it looks amazing!
Check out this YouTube video as Larry Kallio reveals an adjustable concept table by Herman Miller designed for the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface. The tables for Cabot, Lamont and Wolbach will be the SUR40.
