The Impact of Deep UnderstandingUnderstanding people comes in a lot of flavors. An uncommon flavor is understanding people deeper than explanations and opinions. It’s getting inside people’s minds to see how they achieve their larger human intentions and purposes without reference to your organization. The goal is to allow for later inspiration that represents the complicated inner world of people’s approaches, rather than being constrained by existing systems and conventions. You re-frame the way you think about the problem as if your organization does not exist. When you come back to reality after this little exploration, your deeper understanding influences the way you think about solutions. Our UX expert and speaker defines this deeper understanding, outlines how to collect the data, and illustrates how to curate the knowledge in a depiction of the reasoning- patterns (mental model diagrams) and the thinking-styles (behavioral audience segments).

Future-Proofing LibrariesOur speaker, a journalist, screenwriter, and library advocate, shines a light on a number of projects of direct benefit to libraries seeking to “future-proof” themselves against digital disruption and the prospect of diminished funding through increased community engagement/library advocacy. He shares the Library Digital Relevancy Index. which contextualizes the results of the first industry-wide pilot of libraries examining the degree of digital future-proofing. He describes the PXI: Patron Experience Index—a dashboard platform which weighs and displays multiple strategic community key performance indicators involving libraries in community cultural/prosperity/entrepreneurship initiatives—in order to identify programming, partnership, and learning opportunities for library staff and engage library staff in “begin with the end in mind” creative media and programming processes in support of those identified opportunities. Howley discusses the OpenMedia- Desk (OMD). which pre-validates media prior to publishing online (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) in order to maximize engagement with target communities. He also talks about an open app publishing platform to support “cultural destination tourism,” in which the physical experience of exploring the “community icons” within Hamilton’s central Gore Park is digitally reproduced indoors at Hamilton Public Library’s Central Branch in a high-engagement iPhone experience using beacons—Wi-Fi transducers which trigger, via Bluetooth LTE, “proximity storytelling experiences.” This talk is sure to propel your thinking and insights into action with impact!
