Big Orange Big IdeasNeed a library book, but don’t want to spend hours hunting for it in the John C. Hodges Library? Thanks to a big idea called StackMap, the search should be much quicker. A team of librarians implemented StackMap this fall. Accessible on a personal computer or mobile device via the library’s homepage, StackMap is a technology designed by a California company. The program displays a map along with book information and location when someone searches for a book in the library’s catalog. The map pinpoints not only the floor but the specific shelf range where a book is housed.
