The conference will look at the lessons and insights gained from the iBorrow Project. This partly JISC-funded project provides, within the new library and student support centre, 200 thin-client netbook devices available "as easily as picking a book from a shelf".
Desktop virtualisation deployed across a wireless network within the largescale learning space now provides rich management data supporting an enhanced understanding on how students, academic and support staff are reacting to the way that the new resources have been configured.
This conference will be of interest to anyone involved in planning new libraries, learning centres or learning spaces; senior managers, computing staff, library and information specialists. It will also be of interest to academics and other professionals supporting information and communications technologies, e.g. student services managers, education developers and learning technologists.
