D301: Designing Spaces for Staff Innovation & Integrated Services

10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
Sharon L Bostick, Dean of Libraries, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA
Bryan Irwin, Architect & Principal, Sasaki Associates
Liz McGettigan, Director of Digital Library Experiences, SOLUS, UK

As libraries continue to transform and grow, the role of the library as a physical space has increased in importance. But one area often given less attention in designs is staff space. In today’s more user-centric library model, traditional departmental divisions are being replaced by blending of skills, expertise, and new models of staff interaction. Bostick and Irwin look at how academic libraries are incorporating these staff spaces as a critical part of change management. McGettigan shares her work in designing spaces to bring together physical and digital resources for 21st-century customers. Using 4 Square Thinking and Planning, she shows examples of the physical and digital in perfect harmony, with space planning based on the way their new and future customers want to learn and interact in order to be successful
