LIBRARY SERVICES AND OPERATIONS PLANNING

Our library consultants offer academic, school, government and public service planning expertise. This includes on-site workshops and video conferencing activities.

Are you planning to design and develop a learning commons? We offer conceptual planning materials (space and bubble diagrams, CAD plans, collection development recommendations and reports, library master plans) via our web site, enabling our clients to work on project resources in real-time. The combination of library planning research and time-tested planning workshops invites new ways to work on libraries and community centers all over the world.

Do you want to know more about what services you want to deliver to your community? We use an evidence-based approach that combines ILS data with GIS tools to understand the community needs. We also deploy user surveys for a complete market segmentation analysis i.e. we can define who lives where and what their unmet needs are.
