We installed (75) 12″ touch touch displays outside of the University’s digital library study rooms. The monitors notify room reservation schedules and availability allowing for minimal interruption.

The large format touch monitors were used as interactive signage for campus events, alerts and maps in various locations around the digital library. We added an additional (15) Custom 40″ Touch Monitors along with (2)Large Interactive Kiosks.

In fact after the Taylor Family Digital Library was completed-with an overwhelmingly positive response for the students and faculty-Calgary had us upgrade their Energy, Environment, Experimental learning facility.
