Doreen Hansen
Library


The library had a vision to present information about itself and its collections via an interactive touch screen kiosk. Doreen Hansen volunteered to lead the project. The vision for this kiosk included using cutting edge technology, yet maintaining simplicity so that anyone could use it regardless of past computer experience.

To achieve the project goals, the kiosk required software never used before in the library; software for animation, effects, and the many steps of a multimedia production.

We now have a kiosk with larger, crisper images, clearer sound, and faster response. No multimedia kiosk existed anywhere on the UMD campus, nor did the library have the resources or experience to build one.
Doreen’s unusual capacity for both technical and artistic skill came together to make this project a success and her work on this project lights the way for more such innovation on this campus. Doreen is well deserving of this project award.
