How can libraries adopt “design thinking” to improve their library services, programming and spaces? What do libraries need to do to prepare staff for the change? According to Tim Brown, president and CEO of IDEO, “Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”
So, is it a real camp with tents, camp fire, hammock and singing?It is even better!
The webinar “Libraries and the Implementation of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development” was recently held by the information professionals from Latin America and the Caribbean. The webinar was organized as support to the IFLA’s worldwide efforts in empowering librarians to become strong advocates towards the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda.
The speakers were Sueli Ferreira (IFLA LAC Chair), Loida Garcia-Febo (IFLA ALP Chair), Ana Maria Talavera (Colegio de Bibliotecologos del Peru) and Maria Violeta Bertolini (IFLA Advocacy Communications Officer). The event was organized with the support of the IFLA Latin America and Caribbean Section, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group.
