Library Signage

There's a great article in the February 1, 2011 issue of Library Journal that addresses a common problem in our libraries - the lack of neat, effective, consistent signage. If your library has 17 random signs scotch taped to your front door, if you have pictures of cell phones/burgers/sodas with red x's through them pasted on your walls, you should check out this article along with a few others (links below.)
