Ringling College of Art and Design is known as one of the top creative colleges in the USA. At the opening of the state-of-the-art Alfred R. Goldstein Library in January, visitors were treated to a novel technology, built by LogicJunction, which gives wayfinding directions, features a Donor Honor roll and will soon display a rotating selection of student artwork.
The LogicJunction interactive wayfinding and digital solution gives walking directions to more than 30 buildings on campus, as well as indoor turn-by-turn directions to any point of interest in the library. This technology is the first of its kind on Ringling’s campus, and is representative of the college’s commitment to blending design, technology and art.
According to Ringling College of Art and Design “This $18 million state-of-the-art library of the future is designed to adapt and grow with new technologies to come. The library will be an active physical and virtual destination on campus—an intellectual, cultural, social, creative, and technological hub alive with the ebb and flow of students, faculty, and visitors.”
Ringling College of Art and Design, located in Sarasota, Florida, is a private institution that was founded in 1931. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 1,300 undergraduate students. The beautiful 48-acre college campus incudes more than 110 buildings dedicated to 18 different majors and minors in art and design. Ringling College of Art and Design is leading in use of technology in the arts, recognized as one of the best and most innovative visual arts colleges in the United States.
