It is hard to see progress by looking out your window. It may be taking place beyond the horizon. Library Consultants uncover clues to the future by gathering data, facilitating planning workshops, holding dialogs with users and building functional programs. We have developed a process to uncover stakeholder needs and build a case for library funding projects.
If you are going to develop a library program, start with a foundation. We have architectural space planning programs that will outline the inventory of services, seating, collections and technology. We provide specialty knowledge in the ways libraries function. We can help you define your service responses, enabling the library to build a clear organizational plan.
The library program defines the communication strategy, IT, databases, ILS, services and architecture. The program is used by public libraries, academic libraries and marketing communications teams to develop a building or service. Our library consultant team can be customized for a single project or multi-year contracts.
