Design Thinking

IFLA/ALA  Webinar-July 6, 2017

When:  07/06/2017 1:00 PM (Central Time)

Time Zone:  (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US and Canada)

*To join the meeting:*


How can libraries adopt “design thinking” to improve their library
services, programming and spaces?  What do libraries need to do to prepare
staff for the change? According to Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO,
“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from
the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities
of technology, and the requirements for business success.”

This webinar explores design thinking principles, showcases how design
thinking can be used to improve what libraries do and how libraries address
user needs, and identifies strategies that libraries can use to adopt
design thinking into their own work.

Keynote Rolf Hapel, Director of Citizens’ Services and Libraries in Aarhus,

“New Ways of Working – a Danish approach to Design Thinking and other
participatory methods in the libraries”

Services and Libraries in Aarhus, Denmark. He is librarian by education and
holds a master degree in Digitization and Public Administration. He has
served as librarian, deputy manager, city librarian and di-rector in four
Danish cities.

He has been chair of numerous steering groups, committees and advisory
boards nationally and internationally. E.g. he is currently member of
advisory board for EU project Public Libraries 2020, he was member of
advisory board for the Global Libraries initiative of Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation 2008-2013, member of the jury in the competition for the
new main library in Oslo in 2009 and advisor to Helsinki competition for
new city library 2012. Member of PubliCA consortium 1997-99 and member of
the Bertelsmann Foundation International Network of Public Libraries (INPL)
1999-2003. Member of the Danish Ministry of Culture Committee, forming the
Danish act on public libraries, 2003.

Rolf has written many articles and he is an international renowned speaker
on issues like library development and transformation. Among recent tasks
on national level was heading the Danish Digital Library coordinating body.
Internationally, the Next Library biannual conferences and the cooperation
with Chicago Public Library and the design company IDEO supported by Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation on Design Thinking for Libraries have mapped
Aarhus as one of the hot spots for public library development in the world.
The biggest challenge for Rolf has been the realization of the stunning
main library, Dokk1, that opened in June 2015 in Aarhus. It is a 30.000 m2
building reflecting a new concept of the physical library in the networked
society and Dokk1 attracts 1,3 mill. visitors per year in a city of 330.000
