The Sign Committee has the final say on where and for what the tombstone signs will be used.
Certain tombstones may be co-opted for temporary or semi-permanent use at the committee’s
discretion. Kim LaMorte will be the primary contact for tombstone loan. Bethany Silfer may be contacted when Kim is not available.
Those interested in reserving a tombstone sign for either temporary or semi-permanent use may choose one of these options:
- Send an email to the listserv (SIGNS-L@cornell.edu) with subject line: “Tombstone reservation”; the email should include:
- Name and NetID of person requesting tombstone(s)
- Quantity of tombstones being requested
- Purpose for tombstone(s)
- Duration of loan
- Any kroy requirements (single or double sided, portrait or landscape)
- Call Kim LaMorte at 5-5068 and provide the same information
- Come to Olin 213 and complete the Tombstone Sign-Out Sheet
- In the future, there will be an online request form via the Design Website
Kim LaMorte will then contact the requestor and set up the implementation process. They may choose from:
- Preauthorized self-serve: Requestor is instructed to take a certain tombstone away from its current location and set it up as needed with their own sign
- Delivery: Kim LaMorte delivers a selected tombstone to the requesting unit/department/area and the requestor provides their own sign
- Total package: Sign Committee will develop a sign and Kim LaMorte will post it on the tombstone and deliver it to the requesting unit/department/area
The requestor should contact Kim LaMorte when they are done using the tombstone. Please do not bring the tombstone back to 213 Olin or move it anywhere else before talking to Kim. If the requestor does not contact Kim LaMorte within 3 days of the loan expiration, she may take back the tombstone at any time depending on demand. Requestors wishing to renew their loan may use the same procedure as RESERVATION.
Please direct any questions or concerns to Kim LaMorte (email@example.com) or the Sign Committee listserv (SIGNS-L@cornell.edu)
