Creating Posters: A Marriott Library Guide

If you are required to develop a poster of your research project for a class, senior project or any of the University’s research programs for students, then this Guide is for you. The Guide has been developed to assist you with creating a poster using MS Powerpoint. 

Print it out!

After your poster has been completed you can print it at the Marriott Library Knowledge Commons.

Archive it!

You can also add the electronic version of your poster to USpace, the University Institutional Repository. Adding your poster to USpace provides you with future access to your poster. You can then insert a link to the poster into resumes and applications for employment, scholarships, grants and/or graduate schools.

Librarians love to help students

We want to work with you to make your class project an easier and fun experience.  You can learn about resources on your topic by looking at our online subject guides or by contacting a librarian in your specific subject area.

Additional resources to assist you

Visual Communication

Writing and Citing


A number of templates are available for use in the left column of this guide's pages. These templates are intended to be starting points for researchers to adapt and enhance for their own use. 

For students working with an advisor, project manager, or other mentor, please remember to work with that person to make sure the use of these templates is appropriate for the nature of your poster.
