Milne Library is happy to display electronic posters for student organizations, campus and department events that comply with our policies. Electronic posters are shown on the HDTV in the main lobby of the library in a rotation with others in a given week.
Posters may be displayed for up to 2 weeks.

Milne Library E-Poster Guidelines
- E-posters must be submitted as a single MS PowerPoint 4:3 slide in landscape orientation.
- No other file formats will be accepted, including .jpg, .png, or .pdf.
- If you have an image, simply place it on a PowerPoint slide, save and submit. Do not submit a 16:9 slide as the formatting will change.
E-Poster Design Recommendations
- Keep the wording simple, your e-flyer will be circulating with other submissions.
- Be sure the text is large enough to be read from a distance.
Before you submit your poster, take one last look to be sure you have provided the following information:
- Title of Event
- Date(s) and Time(s)
- Contact information
All submissions of electronic posters for display in Milne Library are handled by Steve Dresbach. Confirmation of your submission will be made via email.
