The Augmented Library is an experiential learning class through the Vertically Integrated Project program. Students participating in the course, work for three semesters towards the development of an App to enhance user experience within the library. The students are currently working in two subteams, one focused on user experience and front and development and the second on building the backend architecture. The team aims to integrate augmented reality wayfinding, augmented reality posters, as well as additional features into the app. This poster presents the current progress towards the development of the app as well as future development plans.
