Digital Signs (Billboard)

The College of Natural Resources uses digital signs throughout our buildings and on online events calendar to share information. The events calendar can be found on the college’s website under News and Events. There are six digital signs in the college that display recent news, events and other items of interest. They are located in the following places:

  • Robertson Lobby
  • Biltmore Lobby
  • Biltmore 3rd Floor
  • Biltmore 4th Floor
  • Jordan 1 Lobby
  • Jordan 2 Lobby

Billboard is a delivery system for displaying digital slides  on a digital sign or screen saver.  A joint effort of WolfTech and OIT, Billboard is used as the central management system for displaying signage on computer kiosks and web-enabled digital signs across campus.

The digital billboard system is managed by the Marketing and Communications and you can access a submission form for digital slides on the Communication Request page.

Please allow at least two business days for processing. For questions, email: cnr_comm@help.ncsu.edu.
