In this session:

Imagine a patron walks into the lobby of your library and finds a dedicated computer where they can search the catalog, book a study room, reserve time with a librarian, or even register for a library program. Navigation buttons on the page let the user toggle between different areas. Patrons won’t get lost -- even if the browser controls are hidden to prevent users from visiting other websites – because the navigation is always visible.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Determine what you want your kiosk to offer.  
  2. Create a template for your kiosk guide.
    • Note: Changing a template's layout requires modifying HTML code, so having some familiarity with HTML is important.
  3. Add Content.
  4. Learn how to integrate other Springshare Widgets into your kiosk like these from LibCal:
    1. Book a Librarian  
    2. Reserve a Study Room 
    3. Library Hours
