BCMS Honours Topic: "Location Based Digital Library."
A digital library that is location-aware would allow readers or listeners of electronic book to be much more embraced in the story, as it would be possible for them to visit locations from a book while they read or listened to it. When this library is implemented on a cell phone, it would utilize both a GPS to be location aware, and the powerful processors that are now available in phones for text to speech conversion, allowing users to enjoy a new form of literary tour. Building this system on the Greenstone platform will allow a focus on the unique issues surrounding the mobility of this project while giving access to the features and tools Greenstone already has for creating digital libraries.
