A general Cyber–Physical framework for academic library

  • Zhi-xiu DingEmail author


Recent advances in information technology have paved a way of developing a holistic framework for academic librarianship. Within this framework, all related perspectives should be closely monitored and synchronized between readers and information systems of academic libraries. By utilizing advanced information analysis techniques, libraries are able to serve the readers more efficiently, collaboratively and smartly. Such trend is transforming the academic library to the next generation. In this paper, we propose service-oriented five-layer architecture as a reference for constructing the next generation library. First, we introduce our general structure of Cyber–Physical Library, which constituted by perceptual layer, physical layer, cyber layer, cognition layer and management layer. Second, we present two study cases for demonstrating how the proposed framework works in practical application. It is hoped that the propose framework will provide a reference guideline for future generation of Library 3.0.
