NYPL - "KNOWLEDGE, ANYWHERE."

The Challenge:

How do we motivate more people, especially Millennials and Gen Z, to leverage the resources of the New York Public Library? 

 

My Observation:
People usually see NYPL as a physical space, but might not realize how easily accessible NYPL's world-class digital collections and online resources can be.

The Solution:
Increase awareness of NYPL's accessibility from anywhere by highlighting its online resources through the latest VR and AI

technology.

Prints: 

Prints reside on OOH billboards and social media, visualizing the scenarios that individuals are listening to audiobooks that draw them into the content, in a funny and imaginative tonality. 

 

Virtual Library: ​

Although the libraries are currently closed due to the pandemic, advanced virtual reality technology provides an opportunity, allowing you to gain access to the NYPL, 24/7.  Start your virtual tour on the NYPL website, and check out the books, audiobooks, music, and movies, anytime, anywhere.
