University Library's Digital Signage Policy

Content

University Library units/departments and faculty/staff may promote Library-related services and events on the Library’s digital signage at no charge. Signs will appear on a rotating basis throughout the day.

Submit information as a PowerPoint (.ppt) slide with a page layout of 16 inches wide by 9 inches high. Horizontal PDFs or JPGs (300 to 1080 dpi) are also accepted.

A simple background works best.

Include a brief, clear headline.

20-30 words allows for maximum readability.

Limit use of small text as it will not be legible on a large screen.

Only include basic information. Do not go into great detail. Link to a website or other source for details.

Use of logos or photos pulled from the Internet or other sources may violate copyright law. Submissions may not include any copyrighted images or text without permission.

Management of Content

At this time, the University Library will accept requests to display information on digital signage from Library units and employees pertaining to library matters only, including GSLIS events and programs. The only exception would be if a departmental library (e.g., Grainger, Undergraduate Library, etc.) posts matters relating to their individual spaces. This could include posting information about non-library events taking place in a library facility.

Information is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please allow a week for information to post. Space requests and reservations can be made using the University Library’s Digital Signage Request web form below. State the start and end dates information should run through the web form.

Information will be approved for display at the discretion of the Assistant Director of Advancement for Publications and Public Affairs.

The University Library reserves the right to edit submissions for digital signage display.
