Welcome to Travel and Tourism

 

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."   
St. Augustine

 

Welcome to the Travel and Tourism Subject Guide. This guide is intended to help you find books, locate magazine and journal articles, search online resources, and to find websites with useful content. 

The tabs across the top of the page will help you navigate between topics. Tabs with an arrow have sub-pages.

This resource is for you. Please make comments or suggestions or ask questions. You can contact me using the contact information to the right.

There are three other subject guides that may have information related to Travel and Tourism.  

See these related guides:

  • Culinary Arts that focuses on culinary news, research, techniques, cooking skills and Austin restaurants
  • Hospitality Management that focuses on the marketing and management of hotels and restaurants
  • Meeting and Event Planning that focuses on the many sectors of the meeting and event planning industry

Travel and Tourism Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
