Native apps have become the norm of mobile interaction with digital services, but it’s an expensive way to reach users. With responsive web design, a more inclusive and accessible experience can be crafted for all mobile users instead of just a majority.

If you agree that the website is the primary interface for getting things done in a library, you probably also agree that if it were practical to put usable hyperlinks on actual objects or areas that provide fluid access to their virtual equivalents, the endeavor would be worthwhile. While there are creative examples solving this with QR codes and digital signage, these solutions only solve part of the problem: the hyperlink. There are still issues of usability, user experience, and accessibility, especially for visually-impaired patrons. I’m writing this to propose another solution, built on Bluetooth: beacons.
