LLAMA Webinar: Signs of the future — Using Digital Signage in Your Library

CHICAGO — The days of posting important announcements on a library bulletin board and hoping someone might see them are ending. Today’s digital signage offers many more visible and effective options. Using technologies such as LCD, LED, projection and tablets to display content as digital images, video, streaming media and other formats, digital signage can be found in more and more libraries today. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Signs of the future: Using Digital Signage in Your Library,” at 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. (Central time), on Wednesday, May 24. Join us to learn tips and tricks for how to create digital signage using best practices, and how to make a case for adding affordable digital signage to your library.

By the end of this webinar, participants will learn how to:

- Create inviting and memorable digital signage;
