What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Library Of Congress - Virtual Tour is an educational app that gives users a behind-the-scenes tour of the nation's oldest federal cultural institution. Users can read about areas such as the Main Reading Room and Great Hall, as well as famous exhibits such as the Gutenberg Bible. They're also able to see pictures of the exhibits and architecture of the library and listen to audio files discussing their unique characteristics.
Is it any good?
Even if you've visited the Library Of Congress, this app is an exceptional tool to help you get a better sense of the history and magnificence of the world's largest library. It's an invaluable tool for students researching the facility and would even be useful for self-guided tours. Beyond information about the library itself, the app offers several related links for each subject (which go to the LOC web site). These are helpful, but it would have been nice to have this information included (and formatted) as part of the app, rather than an external link, which detracts slightly from the experience.
