When was the last time your library had a makeover? Do users find your physical space inviting? Are print usage statistics declining? Join international Retail and Library Consultant Kevin Hennah for an information rich workshop on update your library’s look.
Challenging traditional ideas on layout, signage and navigation, this workshop presents thought provoking ideas on how to create a level playing ground between print and new technologies. With a strong emphasis on practical application, this workshop explains in simple terms the steps to self-managing a makeover within a wide range of budgets.
More than just theory, this workshop includes hundreds of photographs of makeovers at all budget levels and impressive examples of usage statistics from libraries that have implemented these ideas successfully. Anyone in any type of library (public, academic, school, special) should attend to learn important techniques for doing a makeover of your library.
