Creating an Interactive Digital Gallery: Using Touchscreens to Enhance NLM Exhibits and Classes

Interactive elements within exhibits and classes enhance the engagement and learning of the participants. This proposed technology enhancement award will increase the interactive capability of the University of Oklahoma (OU-Tulsa) Schusterman Library's digital gallery by adding two digital touchscreens for use in exhibit displays and teaching. The touchscreens will enable the Schusterman Library to develop and display interactive exhibits that engage members of the Tulsa area community in the discovery of National Library of Medicine historical collections and online exhibition materials. The touchscreens will also be employed in community outreach classes for teaching NLM online resources. During the funding period of performance, the Schusterman Library will purchase and install digital touchscreens within our gallery space, research interactive display software and best practices, develop interactive digital displays for NLM exhibits and classes, and evaluate the success and impact of these displays to assist in future projects.
