Digital Signage Guidelines

Page main body content

  • Timely information around important events, resources and services provided by the Libraries and its campus partners are shared on flat-screen HD monitors located on the 1st floor of Bird Library and in Carnegie Library. The signage is powered by the University's Four Winds Interactive system and is part of a campus-wide emergency alert program. In case of emergency, University alert messages replace Libraries content.
  • Additional digital signage is available on various floors in Bird Library, with content locally managed.
  • Content for digital signs is managed by Libraries’ Marketing and Communications.
  • Technical infrastructure is managed by Libraries Information Technology.
  • Input is periodically sought from user services staff in the Libraries.
  • The use of digital signage is subject to the requirements of legal and ethical behavior within the University community.
  • The digital signs promote Libraries’-sponsored and partner events and activities taking place in the Libraries and services/resources offered at the Libraries.
  • In the event of an emergency, University Department of Public Safety will take over all displays connected to the digital signage.
