Want to do the Strategic Planning or Facility Planning workshop for your organization?

We can do Webinars and SKYPE meetings to bridge time zones. Take a look at the results of our Webinar for LLAMA - American Library Association - July 20 2011.

If you are an ALA member, search for our "Physical and Virtual Library Planning" webinar on the LLAMA web site Webinar - LLAMA - American Library Association - August 15, 2012.

Contact our team to set up a special one day event for your community. The activity will build consensus for long and short term library building projects. During the session, participants will learn our library planning metrics. They will do exercises and learn from case studies developed over our 40 year history including academic, public, government, medical, law and special libraries. Workshops include examples of: library program measurements, project management, service point design, data analytics, logistics and budget / capital management

"The Visual Scan" for Future Orientated Libraries:


Our recent workshops confirmed our belief that the knowledge environment is changing. The physical library - library as place - will continue to be increasingly important because of its multi-function use.   For this reason, the interior of the library must be designed for group process, individual study and efficient operations.


How will you transform the library building and what language will you use to develop a functional building program?


We can help you validate the value of your library. We can facilitate a workshop that details the need and defines the special program measurements required to build future-orientated libraries.
