Mappr in the library?

Just recently discovered the Charlotte public library’s Learning 2.0 site, and, though that, Mappr. My first thought about the latter is: could you re-work this to be a map of the library and let people look at the “geography” of the stacks and see images of book covers? Ooh ooh ooh? You could also do “human-interest” pictures of people in the reading room/computer lab/front desk/whatever, but if you could engineer it so it’s like browsing the stacks….hmm.

Are there any downsides to telling people exactly where certain materials are? Would it be a bad idea (for security purposes) to do this for materials kept, say, in the newspaper microfilm area? Would you have to re-do it every time there is a major shift?

 

 

where the heck did this blockquote graphic come from?
