Design Thinking: The Library as an Innovation Factory
Design Thinking offers new approaches to the design and implementation of ideas and services that focus on the best possible library user experience. Nowadays, the way that we interact with libraries and also our demands from library services have changed. Design Thinking can really help libraries by creating better library experiences. In this workshop we will examine how librarians and library users can co-create these services.
