Are you tired of paper signs? Do you want something that is animated, plays video, and/or respond to patrons? Then you’re ready for an interactive kiosk or digital display. You will learn what goes into designing and maintaining displays and kiosks, software and hardware options, and what features are the most useful to patrons. Before you break your savings bank, Goodman will also show you cheap alternatives to an expensive screen. Digital signs can advertise programs and new services. Interactive kiosks are great for inviting users to explore your library further.
