What is the Library Video Tour?

The Library Video Tour is an independent activity that helps you become familiar with the Library’s space, services and resources.

Take the Tour - Option 1:

Visit the 2nd floor Library Services Desk to check out an iPad mini with the Library Video Tour already loaded.   Headphones are available for checkout or you can use your own.

Take the Tour - Option 2:

Refer to the Taking the Tour With Your Own Device tab above to use your own mobile device to take the tour. 

Who takes the Library Video Tour?

Many Writing 1 and Writing 10 sections complete the tour and follow-up assignment as part of their course work, but the tour is available to any UC Merced student, faculty, or staff member.  The tour will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. 

For instructions on how to use the iPad minis available for checkout from the library, see the box to the right. >>>>>>>>>
