Design and Technology Blend Perfectly at Ringling College of Art and Design
Ringling College of Art and Design is known as one of the top creative colleges in the United States. At the opening of the state-of-the-art Alfred R. Goldstein Library in January 2017, visitors were treated to LogicJunction’s interactive wayfinding technology, which provides campus directions and digital signage featured at the entrance of the building.
The digital display screen, powered by LogicJunction’s interactive wayfinding technology, gives walking directions to more than 30 buildings on campus, as well as 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, as is the commitment of many other colleges.
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.”
