SP@RC - 2100 Feniwck Library


The mission of the Scholarly Productions @ the Research Commons Lab is to provide point of need assistance for scholars in disseminating their research, regardless of format.  Our goal is to create self-sufficient scholars who are able to apply best practices in design and research presentation to their work. Services are provided through a combination of full-time staff, GPAs, student assistants, and partners in other campus units. Our staff assists scholars in creating presentations, research posters, and other final projects with a focus on design and layout considerations.


 Please use this form and upload your poster for printing.
We offer free research poster printing through a partnership with OSCAR, the printer has occasional technical difficulties that could result in a delay, please schedule your appointment with ample time ahead of your conference or class.
