What is the iTour?

It is a self-guided tour of the Library using QR Codes scanned with your smart device to display videos that inform you about the location where you are standing.

  2. Check the chart below to identify the best QR Code scanning option for your device.++
  3. Connect your ear buds or headphones to your device. Check out headphones at the Check Out Desk if you don’t have any.

Accessing the iTour Videos
