Coffee Chat: "Design Thinking" in Libraries
Design thinking is an iterative, human-centered approach to understanding the needs of specific groups when developing services, spaces, and products. While the term arose to describe the creative process of design professionals like architects, it has since been applied to a more general process of innovation, popularized by the design consultancy IDEO and the Stanford d.school, among others. In libraries, design thinking serves as a human-centered practice that can be utilized to enhance library user experience, innovate services and systems, and improve space usage.
Join Sonya Durney, MLA Vice-President and Librarian at the University of New England, to learn more about design thinking and discuss with your colleagues from Maine libraries.
