We have a new library mobile tour and we want to know what you think.  Take the tour using your own mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and take photos along the way.  Win a $25.00 Aztec Shops gift card.  Entering the contest is easy.

1.  Take the mobile library tour, starting at the Circulation/Course Reserves Desk.
2.   Take a photo of something you like about the library and upload it to Instagram.
3.  Tag the photo with the contest hashtag: #SDSUlibrarytour.
4.  Multiple entries are allowed.
5.  The contest will run from 12:01 a.m. on January 13, 2014 until 11:59 p.m. on February 28, 2014.

Four winners will each receive a $25 Aztec Shops gift card.

The contest is open to SDSU students, staff, faculty and the public. Library staff and library faculty are excluded. Library student workers are eligible. Every photo with the hashtag #SDSUlibrarytour is considered an entry.

Winners will be notified by March 5, 2014 via an Instagram comment on the winning photos from the SDSU Library Instagram account.  The winner must respond with their email address in order to receive the prize.  A library committee will select the winning photo.  The number of likes on the photos will not determine the winner, but the committee may take photo popularity into account in their decision.

The photographs must obey all laws, including applicable copyright and privacy laws. For privacy reasons, photos of yourself are okay, but do not include other people.  By entering the contest, you are giving the library permission to use your photo.

Instagram is an application for mobile devices that allows you to take photos, add filters for special effects and then upload them to a personal photo stream. It is available for free in the Apple App store and the Google Play store.
