HSWAW's signs and labels, explaining how things work (both in the technical and culture sense), and aiding in organization of the physical space. Not included are inventory system labels.


These labels have been made by different authors over the years in various ways (including using proprietary software). They are collected in this repo verbatim for posterity.

Long term goal is to migrate and standardize on a universal, easy to use use open standard. Ideally a text-based for Git-friendliness. Inkscape SVG, perhaps.

Update: As of 2024-02, we're testing Method-Draw as the canonical way to make signage.


  • //room/* - labels for specific physical rooms
