Recent advances in mobile computing have created enormous opportunities for libraries to provide innovative user experiences with library services and collections. New mobile device platforms include technologies that enable the creation of location-aware services that utilize the user’s current location to enhance information discovery or content filtering. This presentation will focus on the application of these technologies to archives and special collections, using the recently developed NCSU Libraries WolfWalk project as a case study. We will examine the opportunities and challenges of building location-aware digital collections in the near term, and highlight possible future directions.

Delivered at the TRLN Annual Meeting in 2010.
