About

Want to get the word out about your event (or whatever)? Use an e-poster! The 48-inch high-definition flatscreen in the Library's lobby is seen by over 1,000 people on an average weekday. SUNY Cobleskill faculty, staff and recognized student organizations will receive first consideration for posting in Van Wagenen Library.

Design

E-posters need to be submitted as a single JPG image. No other file formats will work— including ppt, pdf, png, etc. If your poster is in a different format, simply use the Save As feature to change it to JPEG File Interchange Format (*.jpg) before you submit the file.

Design recommendations:

  • Keep the wording simple, your e-poster will be in rotation along with other submissions.
  • Be sure the text is large enough to be read from a distance.
  • The screen is sized for 16:9, keep that in mind when formatting your design.

Submission

To submit e-posters:

  • Send your JPG file as an email attachment to library@cobleskill.edu.
  • Tell us who you are, what the e-poster is for, when it should go up and for how long.
  • Tell us how to get in touch with you.

Confirmation of your submission will be made via email. Please do not assume your poster has been accepted until you receive an e-mail confirmation. Posters are usually added each Friday for the following week, sometime between the hours of 8:00am and 3:00pm. The Library reserves the right to request changes to e-posters or to reject submissions if we feel they are inappropriate.
