[FIRST PARAGRAPH] Over the years, traditional tours of the Main Library for new students had become unviable, primarily because of the huge numbers of students on many programmes and the short induction period. The value of such tours had also been questioned and most Liaison Librarians had replaced them with presentations to large groups in lecture theatres. A printed self-guided tour had been available for some time, but was looking dated. The concept of the iPod tour provided the opportunity to supplement other induction activities with something that students could download and use when they chose to, using innovative technologies. Planning for the project started towards the end of June 2005 and the deadline was Intro Week towards the end of September.
