This library uses the standard photo/text tour in a different way by taking users on a "road trip," complete with highway signs, detours, and map legends. The tour offers different highway routes for users to navigate the tour: guided route, interactive library maps, or drop down list of "Where do I find . . . " options. The tour also includes icons beneath the photos to designate specific user services available (e.g., laptop hookups, copy machines, help desk).
