Abstract

This essay introduces the notion of ubiquitous computing from its scholarly foundations and covers the themes and scope of discussion that has arisen within the research literature surrounding this topic. It then extends these discussions to consider how trends in ubiquitous computing and the pervasive reach of the internet have been framed within the educational and learning context. From this point, the essay closes with a provocation by considering the questions that these trends may raise for the university library.

Keywords: ubiquitous library, ubiquitous computing, smart cities, internet of things, education, library
