Embracing Change: Design Thinking, Technology, and the Library

Your Name and Title:Patrick “Tod” ColegroveAssociate Professor, Library Director Library, School, or Organization Name:DeLaMare Science & Engineering LibraryUniversity of Nevada, Reno Co-Presenter Name(s): Area of the World from Which You Will Present:West coast of the United States; Reno, Nevada, Pacific time zone Language in Which You Will Present:English Target Audience(s):Library faculty or staff; new to the field or seasoned professional, whether public, academic, or special library. Short Session Description (one line):This session offers clear examples from one library’s practice illustrating the practical and collaborative approach design thinking can have in the library, its impact on alignment with end-user needs, and the likelihood of successful innovation. Full Session Description (as long as you would like):The practice of libraries – and with it, librarianship – continues to evolve. New technology and services are fundamental to maintaining relevance and best meeting needs of communities served, but which technologies and/or services to implement? Once selected, how can the library create practices that ensure continued refinement and increased relevance of the library to its community? This session offers clear examples that illustrate the practical and collaborative approach design thinking can have in the library, ensuring greater alignment with end-user needs and increasing the likelihood of successful innovation. Building from a framework drawn in the overlap of design thinking with best practices of emerging technology and library practice, overarching phases of design thinking are explored as an interlocking framework. A deep-seated understanding of, and empathy with, the end-users of the library emerges as even more fundamental to library practice today. From the 3D printers and laser cutters of today’s library makerspace, through the library spaces, events, and collections of tomorrow; practical tools that we can use as we collectively work to navigate the future of the library. Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session:Library website: https://library.unr.edu/delamareSee More

Design Thinking in the Assessment Life Cycle

Your Name and Title:Maggie Faber, Data Visualization & Analysis LibrarianLibrary, School, or Organization Name:University of Washington LibrariesCo-Presenter Name(s):Jackie Belanger, Director of Assessment and PlanningArea of the World from Which You Will Present:Seattle, WALanguage in Which You Will Present:EnglishTarget Audience(s):Academic Librarians, Assessment LibrariansShort Session Description (one line):Design Thinking has allowed librarians at UW to follow up on survey results and outstanding questions in an integrated part of the Assessment life cycle.Full Session Description (as long as you would like):Design Thinking is one key strategy librarians at the University of Washington (UW) Libraries use to help with the challenge of moving from analysis and communication of assessment results to actions that lead to improvements for the user community. Guided by high-level survey results, design thinking offers a rapid and agile methodology for follow up assessments and service improvements that is iterative, user-focused, and data-driven.The assessment team, working closely with key Libraries stakeholders, explore assessment results by asking stakeholders for additional and unanswered questions and identifying areas that warrant further investigation. Using these questions, the team pulls together a short-term pop up group, guided by the discussion with the larger stakeholder groups, that uses user feedback in an iterative process of rapid design, prototyping, and (re)assessment.This presentation uses case studies from the UW Libraries to illustrate the integration of design thinking into the Assessment life cycle and provide insights on the adoption of design thinking in a large academic research institution.Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session:Graduate Student Citation Management Tools Design Thinking Project Report: http://www.lib.washington.edu/assessment/projects/ProjectReportCitationToolsDesignThinking_final.pdfUnderstanding the Transfer Student Experience Using Design Thinking: https://digital.lib.washington.edu/researchworks/handle/1773/40336See More

However, as many librarians have a range of responsibilities and limited time, managing resources to maintain this cycle can be problematic. This session will take a look at how to use design thinking to improve upon and sustain your current library communications model in order to reach various target groups and narrow the divide between the services we offer and the people we serve.Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session:N/ASee More

Using Design Thinking to Plan Library Courses

Your Name and Title: Claire Nickerson, Learning Initiatives and OER LibrarianLibrary, School, or Organization Name: Fort Hays State University Forsyth LibraryCo-Presenter Name(s): NoneArea of the World from Which You Will Present: Hays, Kansas, United StatesLanguage in Which You Will Present: EnglishTarget Audience(s): Librarians who teach coursesShort Session Description (one line): Learn strategies for brainstorming topics to cover in library-taught courses, organizing topics into a cohesive course, and revising courses iteratively.Full Session Description (as long as you would like):Fort Hays State University has two online graduate-level courses, Introduction to Graduate Liberal Studies and Information Literacy, that are currently taught by librarians. The former covers finding and evaluating reasearch sources, while the latter covers using those sources to write academic papers.Previous to 2016, the Introduction course had a fairly standard format: every week, students were to read a portion of an information literacy textbook, watch a video, and then make a forum post. The final project was a 10-item annotated bibliography. In the summer of 2016, the course was redesigned to use a more varied format and educational resources and to be more ambitious in its coverage using design thinking. The project began with brainstorming topics that should be covered (some old and some new) and then organizing them into cohesive groups by week. In the fall of 2016, the course re-launched with new learning objectives and a varied collection of zero-cost course materials. It has continued to change iteratively in successive semesters based on feedback gathered from students using mid-semester surveys and course evaluations. Now, the Information Literacy Course is also being redesigned using a similar process.Attendees will learn strategies for brainstorming topics to cover in library-taught courses, organizing topics into a cohesive course, and revising courses iteratively.Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session: NoneSee More
