    Abstract: In recent years, there has been much interest in the potential for situated displays to support sense of community. In this chapter, we describe our experiences of two significant situated display-based deployments which explore some of the issues that arise when such systems are used on a day to day basis. The first deployment described is that of the Hermes system which has been deployed and evaluated in both a University department and a domestic home setting. The second deployment is the Wray photo display which has been deployed in two locations in a rural village located in the north of England. Both deployments made strong use of user-centered design and have benefitted from longitudinal evaluation in order to provide key insights into issues of adoption and appropriation.
