One Day Workshop to Program Your Library, Develop New Digital Literacy Services, Create Learning Spaces & Long Term Facility Planning Efforts

The development of library services and spade for higher education, health science, K-12, research and museum space is a challenging task. Our clients regularly ask us to share our knowledge about learning spaces, flexibility, and planning for the integration of technology and design.

Our workshop attendees are normally people who have projects that are either in pre-planning or at the implementation stage.

During the session, participants will learn our library planning metrics. They will do exercises and learn from case studies developed over our 48 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

During this workshop:

  • We encourage clients to network and provide feedback learn about their needs.

  • We will share the five modes of learning and tour the NYC Worklife to show how furniture support each mode (social, collaborative, reflective, presentation, touch-point).

  • We will share programmatic considerations for implementing a shared research space on campus or in an education and healthsciences community

  • We will help connect programming goals to support design choices

  • We will share examples of library+education+healthscience+research space designs

  • Our expert presenters bring experience from multiple projects to the table. Their firsthand knowledge will help answer your library planning and research space questions to move your project forward.
