In conjunction with our Main Library colleagues, the EDINA Mobile Internet project has developed a self-guided tour app using beacons for the main library.
The app has been specifically designed for the Doors Open Days on the 26th and 27th of September 2015. It will allow users to explore the University of Edinburgh’s Main Library through an interactive tour enabling you to learn about the history of the building, discover the exhibitions space and find out more about the library’s varied services and world-class collections.
The app uses beacons to pop up a series of videos as you explore the building(see screenshots below). It is available for download in iOS and Android versions from the Google Play store and the Apple app store :
