Gowalla

More recently, the Library has begun to use the service Gowalla to enhance the discoverability of its archive materials around campus. Students using this location-based social network check in to different venues to share their location with their friends. When checking in, Gowalla users can see pictures related to their current location. The Z Smith Reynolds Library is adding archived campus construction images to the appropriate venues on Gowalla so that students will be able to see historic images when they check in. These new ways of embedding information in the physical environment introduces the Wake Forest community to an exceptional and new way to discover and interact with information.
