Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Table Display

This display is suitable for students using a trifold or other means to display their poster on a table. The student is responsible for providing the trifold.

Bulletin Board Display

This display is suitable for posters that can be hung vertically on a board using tack pins. The maximum allowable poster size is 44" x 48". Most commonly students create large posters using the templates below and print them at the Library using the plotter (wide-format printer). In order to have a large poster printed for the Research and Performance Showcase, all students/faculty are required to schedule an appointment by signing up for an appointment in the Library. An appointment signup sheet is located at the Library Reference Desk. Questions should be directed to Peg Cook or Julie James. Showcase poster printing is available Monday through Friday from APRIL 27TH to MAY 5TH. Plan to spend about 15 to 20 minutes printing your poster. All students/faculty must have posters completed and ready to print prior to an appointment. Those who show up for an appointment without a pre-formatted poster file will be turned away and a new appointment will have to be made. Sponsoring faculty members are encouraged but not required to accompany students. For assistance in formatting your Showcase poster, see the following links for our Showcase Poster Template:
