Today’s skill: Adobe inDesign

So our wonderful circulation supervisor in the music library, Erin, created a PDF map of the music library by floor which has been so helpful. I wanted to add a more visual element to this as well. At first, I figured I wanted to add a video tour or something. After some trials and many errors….naaaah. Just wasn’t going to work.

But then I remembered something Misti mentioned – an interactive map! So people would hover over part of the map and a picture and brief description would show up. And I thought yes. Let’s do it. A google search and Creative Cloud download later (Thanks IU!), I settled in and worked.

Hours later. Hours. Like…7+ hours. I had the first version done! It’s so cool! It’s gone through a few revisions since then, but I think it’s finally all set. I’m really proud of it, and now I can say I know how to use inDesign!
