Library visit with analysis of each floor
So this post will be a bit busy but i will try and organize it to the best of my ability. I’m posting it mainly so it is documented, I have it in pen and paper form which has a sense of visual structure for each floor. This will be in note form so ignore the blaring lack of grammatical structure.
Walk in Victoria street entrance
yellow sign with current floor information indicated in red ground floor, left 1st floor middle, 2nd floor right.
right children and young adult section indicated by large blue neon sign
young adult dewy decimal system
large wall space around membership desk and before picture books could be used, currently blank
membership desk sign not visible when your at the actual desk. Its on the other side of a pillar.
young adult pillar not standing out against carpet color- mainly blue (two main colors are blue and purple with some yellow,white and red dotted around-this applies to whole library.)
computer next to escalators and stairs.
more small banners which dont stand out due to colors
bigger barnacles then on shelves share hierarchy with banners to a degree.
end of shelves have white sign indicating alphabetical order
dividers with letters on shelves
audio visual section has good standing out end of shelve signs but content is divided on to both sides with no clear order to which side things are
