ARLib is a location-based application for a mobile Augmented Reality system based on a notebook computer, a head-mounted display fitted with a FireWire camera, and powered by Studierstube 2.0 software. The application aims to aid the user in typical tasks that are done in a library by augmenting a book's position on a shelf The system utilizes an optical tracking approach, relying on ARToolKit for recognizing markers, Markers are attached to bookshelves and walls to determine the viewers position, as well as to books themselves. A powerful multicriteria search engine combined with an interface that supports grafitti text input grants a maximum of usability and speed.
