Thanks to a $15M gift from Toby and Leon G. Cooperman, Hunter College started an ambitious renovation project to bring the main library to 21st century standards.
I was lucky to be involved in the first phase of this renovation.
I worked closely with Spatial Discipline (Calvert Wright Architecture) on the digital signage on the third floor of the library, as well as a donor scroll in the main staircase.
Based on the location of the digital signage, students expect to see different information: Hours of operation, next available tech support lane, upcoming event room, etc.
I integrated these expectations in the different wireframes I built for the three desks on the third floor: welcome, reference, and circulation.
Data pulled from the event calendar RSS feed, the Twitter API, a dynamic sheet for hours of operations, and more.
The signage was powered by Four Winds Interactive, a system I had worked on—and prototyped for—for a couple of years.
