The CMSRU Library supports the medical education needs of a new and growing medical school, the high-level clinical needs of our associated academic medical center, Cooper University Hospital, and the needs of the fifteen graduate medical education programs offered at Cooper. The library presently uses traditional technologies, such as email and website/Blackboard announcements to support the curriculum and provide outreach services. CMSRU wants to harness handheld devices, using Bluetooth light environment BLE technology, to communicate inside and outside library walls while providing access to resources and services at the point of need. This proposal describes how the CMSRU library intends to utilize BLE technology to provide outreach services and critical information.
