Libraries everywhere are re-envisioning themselves as places, spaces, and services for 21st-century users. Focusing on the user has become central to creating and improving library services, spaces, collections, instruction, and programming. Hear three ways this is happening. MIIS created a new position dedicated to learning about and responding to our users. Hear how a campus course became an opportunity for the new user experience librarian to work alongside a core user group: students. Team Library, working with the librarian, transformed and revitalized the library’s downstairs space using design thinking. PLS, located in Oklahoma, had a dream of delivering its innovative in-person library experience to the library cardholder’s mobile device. Hear about their experience with an app developed by its integrated library system vendor and how they moved to an internally designed app debuted in the Android and iOS app stores called Pioneer Library System Connect, but affectionately nicknamed “The One App to Rule Them All.” Infographics continue to be go to tools to help professionals break down content and link vocabulary content and additional information. Marketing companies are already using infographics more and more to help reveal data and get the buyer to connect more with the content. Get tips to become a successful infographic innovator, by understanding the scaffolding necessary to build a successful infographic as well as some cool online tools such as Canva, Google Drawing, Easel.ly, and many more!
