We speculate that, if books were labelled with our AR graphic instead of a catalogue number, books would be easily found when looking over the shelves (especially in hard to reach places). We plan to attach a graphic to the end of each shelf which displays a list of every book that resides there, plus one on the end of every book.
We propose that our AR system would make navigating an archive will become as easy as browsing the web. You only have to look at the boxes/shelves to see what each container carries. No digging around, no confusion, just a quick and easy process, allowing for more time researching the material.
With the new system, books will become interactive. Images/instructions/explanations can spring from the page. Imagine if a researcher/librarian was able to insert a bookmark with their findings and ideas about the content, into the book, how useful that could be to future readers of the text. We could also visualise images such as architectural structures and plans, sculptures, skeletons, atoms and compounds, the possibilities are endless.
