Hillman Library




The display on the front façade of University of Pittsburgh's Hillman Library allows patrons to tell how full a given floor is at a glance. There are colored bars corresponding to each floor that use length and color to communicate. The data is gathered from motion sensors at the entrances to each floor.

Additionally, there is a multi-touch, interactive display located near each entrance that provides access to history and trends of the floor population data.
