“Narrated by a Student” Ohio University Libraries

Ohio University Libraries


Via Eric in my LIS701 Class:

The library now has a new way for students to learn about the library. You can now borrow our iPod to take an audio tour around Alden. Simply stop by the Learning Commons Desk on the second floor of Alden to check out our iPod. The tour of all seven floors covers the basics of the library, and will take about 30 minutes to complete.

If you already own an iPod or MP3 player, you can download the tour by following one of the links below. We currently have two versions of the tour, one guided by a librarian and one narrated by a student. Just click on the links to save to your iPod or MP3 player. Once you’ve taken the tour, please take a moment to give us some feedback.

My favorite bit is that they have a narration by a librarian or by a student! What a perfect example of adding a few technologies, outreach and humanity to an academic Web site. Take a lesson here, curious librarians. You can do this stuff too!
