Graphics Tools at Penn Museum

Museum Library staff have access to a laser color printer that can handle letter- and legal-size paper.

“Those responsible for designing for the Penn Libraries use InDesign, but my intern and I find building stuff from scratch in InDesign difficult ( training just not enough for the occasional user). Instead, we use Canva to compose and manipulate elements, then put in Illustrator in order to integrate the Penn Libs preferred font and add the logo.

“We also use Word for some materials that are wordy and do not require many design elements.

“Penn Libraries has recently changed the ways in which librarians can submit content for the digital media screens in Van Pelt using PowerPoint slides.”
