Campus Display System
Throughout the three campuses of Lewis & Clark, digital screens display a feed of upcoming events drawn from LiveWhale, our content management system. The campus displays provide greater visibility for events and show our campus community and guests what an exciting place this is to be.
How to post your event
Members of the Lewis & Clark community can follow these directions to post their events to the digital screens on campus.
- Log in to your LiveWhale account. Academic departments, programs, offices, and student groups already have access. If you need an account, contact email@example.com.
- Create a new event or edit an existing event in your LiveWhale group.
- Complete all the required event fields. The “Event Description” is only viewable through the online campus calendar, so make sure your title and summary provide sufficient information for viewers of the digital screens. Also, be sure your summary references who is invited. For example, is your event open to the public or intended only for students?
- You must complete the field titled “Place this item on the map?” in order for your event to appear on the screens. Mapping your event tells the system whether it is taking place in the Portland area, which is a requirement to appear on the screens.
- Add a relevant image. A photo or graphic will help your event get noticed.
- Tag your event appropriately. Do not apply directional tags (like send-to-undergraduate screens, send-to-graduate-screens, or send-to-law screens) unless it is a major event of general interest for the entire community.
The system displays a real-time feed of 10 upcoming events. During the busiest parts of the semester, the screens may only show one day’s events; at other points in the year, the screens may show several days’ worth. After an event starts, it falls out of the rotation and another event is added to the feed for the screens.

About the system
During the summer of 2011, ten digital screens were installed across all three campuses to promote upcoming events and programs. Funding for the system was provided by the President’s Strategic Initiative. The collaborative project included the Provost’s office, Dean of Students office, Public Affairs and Communications, Facilities Services, IMS, and IT.
