Design Thinking in a day : an at-a-glance Guide for advancing your Library

17.02.15
Design Thinking i biblioteker. IDEO har sammen med Aarhus Kommunes Biblioteker og Chicago Public Libraries lavet et toolkit med udgangspunkt i design thinking. Med det i hånden bliver man guidet igennem metoder til at skabe services, der passer til brugernes behov. Det er tilpasset biblioteker, men kan i høj grad også bruges af andre offentlige institutioner og virksomheder.

Toolkit’et består af:
•    Toolkit: få masser af nyttig viden om design thinking, og hvordan det kan bruges
•    Værktøjsbog: få en grundig introduktion til de værktøjer, du har brug for
•    Den korte introduktion – prøv en light-udgave af toolkit’et, der giver en kort introduktion til design thinking og en gennemgang af, hvordan du kan lære det i løbet af en dag

Toolkit’et kan også downloades her: http://www.designthinkingforlibraries.com

IDEOs design thinking toolkit for libraries
IDEO, Chicago and Aarhus Public Libraries are pleased to present the Design Thinking Toolkit for Libraries. The toolkit can be used by any front-line library staffer to adapt to library users’ changing needs.

Design thinking for libraries
Chicago and Aarhus Public Libraries worked with design company IDEO to find out how design thinking methods might best be adapted and applied to a library context. The final result is a comprehensive new resource for any staff member hoping to advance their library by using human-centered design methods. Learn more and download the toolkit here:

What can I use it for?
The toolkit guides you through Design Thinking so you can start coming up with solutions to everyday challenges within the library. Design thinking, or human-centered design, is all about starting with people — the users that visit your library. IDEO have been using similar methods to envision new products, services, spaces, and experiences in other business areas. IDEO created this toolkit specifically for the library setting in close cooperation with the project teams at Chicago and Aarhus Public Libraries.

The toolkit comes in two parts: the toolkit guide, and the accompanying activities workbook. If you don’t have much time then download the ”At-a-Glance-Guide” which introduces how you might get started using design thinking over the course of one day.

The toolkit is created with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – The Global Libraries initiative.
