Imagine an interactive access point or gateway into your academic library's digital collection that is both interesting and tied to social networking. One such site is called Historypin and it can be found at http://www.historypin.com.
Here is an example of London in the HistoryPin window. Images are sorted by location, sometimes with several at one place, and easily accessible. Once you find an interesting photo, you can click on it.
Here is the Historypin map for Tampa, Florida.
What's also exciting is that Historypin allows several types of multimedia images to be used. Below is a movie clip about the destruction of the old Tampa Stadium in 1999.
