Pictorial Examples of IUN Library Signage

thenewcirc.jpgCurrent View: Circulation Desk. Note hanging sign above file cabinets.

oldelev.jpgOld View: Elevators. The wall directory to the left was the only professionally produced sign. The elevators' black upon black color made them difficult to locate, and the position of the directory, as well as the directory's black coloring, did little to assist users. The directory was removed and replaced with locally created art works.

Current View: Elevators. Notice the directory installed between elevators. Placing the directory here had two benefits: information was now located immediately in front of the entrance and the directory produced a visual differentiation between the black on black elevators. Art work now flanks each side of the elevators to further differentiate the area.

oldexit.jpgOld View: Exit. Note the complete absence of signs and the confusing array of turnstiles adjacent to the right of the actual exit.

newexit.jpg Current View: Exit. A hanging sign has been installed over the exit and adhesive signs placed on both sides of the crash bar.

newopac.jpgCurrent View: Online Catalog Cluster. A hanging sign now designates the area.

newrefd.jpgCurrent View: Reference Desk. This area now includes two service desks and is identified by a hanging sign.

oldexam.jpgOld View: One of our Periodical tables. Examples of signage utilized prior to the project included handwritten paper signs of varying sizes and typefaces, engraved signs, and pre-cut adhesives.
