The Spotlight section of the website homepage is intended to display resources and services that the Libraries want to highlight, whether they are new or not. Some examples are 24/5 service, printing/scanning/copying, quiet rooms, and electronic resources.
The News/Events section is intended to display one-time announcements and library-related events. Some examples are exhibits, book discussions, FOL activities, and surveys.
The Digital Signs can be used for both purposes, but will geared toward a more general audience. All necessary information should be included on the image as the signs are generally not appropriate if the viewer needs to go somewhere else for more information. Some examples are Libraries & FOL events, current exhibits, general Libraries information, highlighted services, and interesting Libraries and UNCG images. We currently have 3 Digital Signs - they are located in the Jackson Library main lobby, the DMC ottoman empire, and the Schiffman Music Library. Each sign will display both general and localized content.
To request that an item be posted, please use the new submission form at:
(To access the form you will need to login with your UNCG credentials.)
Because these communication mechanisms are visual displays, all submission should include an appropriately related image. If you don't have an image, the team will work with you to create one. Postings to Spotlight and News/Events also require a URL to link to the resource or news/event information.
The DVCT reviews all submissions for appropriateness and to determine the best mechanisms for distribution, always in consultation with the submitter. Please give the DVCT at least one week to create and post each submission.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Terry Brandsma, the DVCT Chair.
