  • This is my opening slide. I feel the colors are great for my target audience and reflect the welcoming message that the entire presentation should represent.
  • This may be a realistic visual. The graphic of the girl sitting on a vast amount of books should help the new students understand that the library may feel overwhelming but if they know where to look, they can find what they need.
  • This is the last part of the introduction to what the students should expect to see. This is also provides instruction on how to use the virtual tour of this presentation.
  • This is a realistic visual. On this slide, I have represented every area of the library. I used the purple colors for the bookshelves to make them appear warm and inviting. The tables are actually white. This gives it a realistic feel while still appearing pleasing and adds a nice balance to the purple. The “carpet” used in this slide is very close to the actual color and looks nice with the rest of these colors used on this slide. The students can click on each item and view it’s contents and also gain simple library rules that apply to each.
  • These slides that follow are organizational. They all contain information related back to the map. I kept them simple since they are intended to be read. The picture on each is meant to give the students a realistic visual of the actual location in the library. The only movement I put in was a delayed spin of the “back to map” link, in case, the student needed direction on where to go from there.
