Doaa Abdel-Gaber Abdel-Aleem Ali

The purpose of this paper is to highlight on the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology trying to raise awareness and knowledge about NFC within information science society and to improve understanding of its functionality and development, as well as to place it into the broader context of existing technologies that we can incorporate it into our universities, libraries, and services. The study is carried out through literature review, data gathering and contacting some information tech companies. This note reflects the advantages of adaptation NFC in the university, campus and library. NFC tries to harmonize today’s different activities and make people’s lives easier and more convenient. So it is considered an ongoing leap toward ubiquitous computing. Since NFC is a recent technology and the mainstream adoption is not yet obtained with little reports focus on its potential impacts, our comprehensive study is considered a contribution to explore on the impact of NFC technology and applications on the communities of university and digital library.
