UCR Library Sign System Manual.
California Univ., Riverside. Library.
This manual outlines the procedures to be used for producing and placing signs within the libraries of the University of California, Riverside and presents examples of signs which conform to the library sign policy. The sign policy itself is described as well as procedures for requesting new or revised signs and for sign removal. Drawings of approved signs and specifications for their use, size, material, color, and placement are presented within six categories: (1) orientation signs to orient users to building resources, e.g., main lobby, floor, and area directories; (2) identification signs for major areas and service points, individual rooms, and parts of the library collection; (3) directional signs to be placed at decision points on major routes to library resources; (4) instructional signs, which convey a single message in the use of catalogs, major tools, and services; (5) regulatory signs, e.g., notices of no smoking areas, emergency procedures, and copyright regulations; and (6) current awareness signs informing users of special events, library hours, exhibits, building changes, and new services or publications. Sample sign and nameplate request forms are also provided. (ESR)
