  • (Not seen on the Slide: Green Roofs (reflective – reflects light/vegetative – keeps building cooler in the summer & uses rainwater for the plants instead of run-off); Natural light & outdoor scenery; Bike racks & easy access to public transportation; Recycled materials for flooring, countertops, wood finishes Energy efficient lighting, low-flow faucets & toilets, waterless urinals, automatic hand-dryer;s Ponds on site to reduce rainwater that enters the sewage system; Solar panels for hot water; Re-use of existing building
  • Note: Allows DCPL to remove stacks, move stacks and have access to power/data everywhere in the future; With the added environmental benefit of having our HVAC system at the floor level where people are
  • INSTEAD: Conference rooms become quite study rooms when not used for a conference
  • INSTEAD: Set up a computer lab anywhere
  • NOTE: Power and data available at all tables in older buildings; power and data accessible in all new buildings with raised floors
  • NOTE: Same shelving – completely interchangeable within the branch and from branch to branch – different look with different end panels
  • Standardized items include: Signage, shelving, children’s picture book bins, book trucks, safes, projection screens, meeting room tables and chairs, staff furnishings, trash containers, step stools, restroom fixtures (toilets, baby changing stations, etc.), walk-off mats, wall & corner guards, door plates, lamp sizes (allow 4 types of interior lamps/2 types of exterior lamps) – and more.
  • NOTE: IN BOTH NEW and HISTORIC LIBRARIES – Computer areas, open reading rooms, quiet study rooms, conference rooms, with dual purposes – can even use a story room for after school study, day care gathering place, etc. – All glassy, transparent
  • Hello everyone. I’m Kim Bolan Cullin. There are two key elements to this presentation: THE CONTENT – This is a BEST PRACTICES OVERVIEW as I’ve seen things develop over the past 15+ years. FIRST…as a former library administrator who went through several building projects And NOW….as a library consultant (going on 6 years) who works with all types and sizes of libraries to enthusiastically and effectively plan and design library buildings THE PRESENTATION – This is a top trend in itself. We’ll discuss more at the end of the presentation.
  • It’s time to talk about SPACE…
  • Uh…wrong space
  • Ahhhhh…library space…that’s better.
  • Great library space is more than architecture & furniture Although…not to be misunderstood…both of these elements are important. It’s just that there’s much more that needs to be learned, understood and integrated in order to make the BEST choices for a physical library design.
  • Space is a lunch pad for excellent service for today and into the future… Understanding your users and your library’s current and future service is probably THE most critical aspect of the entire facility planning process.
  • The libraries that are understanding and embracing these concepts and implementing TRULY successful and forward-thinking library buildings and services get that it’s: - All about their users and making the Library the space THEY WANT and NEED it to be.
  • I truly believe that if I could channel Melville Dewey today, he would agree.
  • Okay, I’ve resorted to mnemonics. Not to be confused with the more common 4F mnemonic of fruit, fungi, flowers and foliage .
  • My 4 Fs are: [read slide]
  • [Paraphrase slide] Putting your personal biases & expectations aside… This is the first and foremost component that needs to be understood in exploring building function and service. You need to talk with YOUR USERS. Not just once or twice. This must be ONGOING & OFTEN and in multiple settings – conversations focus groups design charrettes public meetings and REPEAT So…here’s what I’ve been hearing from users across the country…
  • Understanding how people interact with the library and its materials How things are arranged within the library, on the shelves, etc. And…
  • Keeping in mind what the future MIGHT hold… Recent examples: Hand and Power Tools – Globe Public Library (AZ) Fishing Equipment – Wood Library (NY)
  • [Paraphrase slide] Key elements include…
  • [Read slide} So…what does this mean?
  • [Paraphrase slide]
  • One of the most highly demanded and discussed “service” is flexible meeting room spaces.
  • This looks like something most of us have never seen in a library, but people are asking for this!
  • A shift in service points = a HUGE shift in how we think about building planning and implementation. Studies show that anywhere from 40% to 60% of Library visitors will not approach a desk to ask for help, even if they need it!
  • Tying in with changes in physical service points is the concept of “supported” self-service…
  • Anything that adds convenience and fosters USE!
  • Digital Creativity Spaces let users OF ALL AGES age explore technology such as video production, audio production and whatever comes down the line. Technology literacy!!!!
  • I love these signs. You can see them from a great distance as you walk in the front door. Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t “need” signage or it ruins the aesthetic of the space! Good designers understand the importance of signage in public buildings & know how to creatively and effectively incorporate it.
  • Just say no to jargon. Use “real people” words. ;-)
  • Need to apply flexibility to all the ideas previously discussed as well as any others that come along…
  • Flexibility can range mean anything from thinking about portability of furnishings and things like casters on furniture to…
  • Thinking about overall flexibility of how the space is designed and used.
  • Flexible space can [read slide]
  • And NOW we get Form and how it ENHANCES FUNCTION AND APPEAL…. I’m sure Jeff will be elaborating for you.
  • [Read slide] These are key elements that MUST be considered throughout the library.
  • Simple changes have a huge impact!
  • Again, it’s about creating a place where people want to be.
  • [Read slide] HUGE concept. Looking at user participation in facility design in a brand new way.
  • End user feedback and participation is the key to success. Again, talk with YOUR USERS! Not just once or twice. This process must be ONGOING & OFTEN through conversations focus groups design charrettes public meetings and REPEAT
  • Active user participation and education is behind everything I do when it comes to library planning… You need to “Get user input and show them the possibilities” so they can react, provide feedback, and create the vision for your library.
  • In addition to reaching out in person
  • This brings me back to one of my key points at the beginning of the session. Think of this presentation as a sample of what you could create for your staff, your users, etc. to educate them about what the possibilities are for their library.

    • Providence Associates LLC
  • Hi. I’m Kim Bolan Cullin. A stunningly realistic drawing, isn’t it?
  • It’s time to talk about… SPACE
  • Uh… wrong space.
  • How about… Library Space BUMMER
    • Episode X
    • Libraries: A New Hope
    • A long time ago….
    • There were libraries designed with books and tables. There was a librarian behind a desk to direct people where to go. Now we live in a new world and it is time to change the face of libraries one building at a time…
  • Great library space is more than architecture & furniture.
  • Space is a launch pad… for a lean, mean, service machine!
  • Hell, yeah!
  • Libraries… THE FINAL FRONTIER. And a space where people want to be!
  • It’s time to rethink “traditional” library service!!!!
  • And that means we need to talk about the… 4F S
  • A.K.A. F UNCTION F LEXIBILITY F ORM F EEDBACK
  • Let’s put the FUN in Fun ction
  • Put your personal biases & expectations aside and ask yourself, “ What do your users need & want most?” Rebels!
  • Browseable collections put materials within arms reach.
  • Power tools need hooks and pegs, not shelves & book ends. Uncommon collections deserve uncommonly great spaces! Now Circulating: Hand and Power Tools – Globe Public Library (AZ) Fishing Equipment – Wood Library (NY)
  • As your community “grows up” the spaces they use should grow too.
  • Build Multi-functional, Zoned Children’s Spaces And they will come!
  • Pre-school Ages 0 - 4
  • Young School Aged Ages 5 - 8
  • Pre-teen Ages 9 - 12
  • Move beyond the “one space fits all ages” concept. Build a library that works with ages 0 - 18 and fosters youth development at all stages!
  • Separate, Interactive Teen Spaces
  • Think… variety in size & function, flexibility, capability. FLEX Meeting Spaces
  • This space has it all!
  • Orange County (FL) Library System Big service desks be gone! Smaller kiosks encourage interaction! RIP Big Desk!
  • Supported Self-Service… Provides fast & convenient access for checkout, holds pick-up, and more!
  • Drive up services add convenience. Can I get fries with that fiction?
  • Digital Creativity Spaces let users explore technology in new ways.
  • And…it doesn’t have to take place “in a room.”
  • Let’s talk about SPACE & SIGNS. I’m a Pisces! Not that sign.
  • Excellent, clear signage guides patrons to where they’d like to be.
  • Eliminating jargon lets customers understand the library.
  • Digital Signage spreads messages quickly .
  • Flexibility enhances functionality
  • Flexible spaces grow, move, and change on a daily basis to fit your ever changing needs.
  • Casters let space move to accommodate different arrangements, events, etc.
  • Flexibles spaces don’t just look cool…
  • They can also be adapted today, tomorrow, and even after 5 years without significant $$$$ investment! Like a librarian high roller!
  • Form Adds Appeal
  • Furniture , color & lighting are essential. Ooooo... PRETTY.
  • New seating Color + Lighting Transformed Space Simple changes can have a huge impact.
  • Make your library a place where people want to be.
  • Feedback enables users to shape space
  • The 4Fs work together… And user feedback moves them all forward!
  • Get user input & show them the possibilities
  • Online discussion forums & surveys enable even your busiest users to provide input.
  • Eye-catching, informative (and humorous) presentations grab your patrons’ attention & educate them . Aliens get attention!

    • “ Fenton argues that there was a distinct difference between the hybrid building and mixed-use, in that the individual programs relate to one another and begin to share intensities.
    • The concept of hybridisation originates from genetics and refers to cross breeding of different species.” p. 7

  • "It struck me as an important concept," Mr. Ungar says. "You don't diminish the importance of the library by putting other things in it." Sanford J. Ungar, President of Goucher College Any new (academic) library building will have hissing espresso machines, padded chairs, and noisy study areas. But what does one make of a library with an art gallery, a restaurant, and open forum space that can seat at least 700 people? How about treadmills, exercise bikes, and rowing machines as well? Carson, Scott. Is It a Library? A Student Center? The Athenaeum Opens at Goucher College. Chronicle of Higher Education. Sep 24 2009
  • “ Today's academic-library buildings, more than any other campus structures, have to be all things to all people—places where social and intellectual pursuits collide, places that serve the community and the individual simultaneously. Dig into a book. Get a latte. Collaborate on a project. Nap during a study session. College libraries are a destination for those activities and more .” Carson, Scott. Is It a Library? A Student Center? The Athenaeum Opens at Goucher College. Chronicle of Higher Education. Sep 24 2009

    • A mixed-use library or a hybrid academic building?
    • Sep 17, 2009
    • Goucher College in Maryland has a new library. Sort of. Yes, there are stacks and study carrels and a circulation desk and so forth, but . . . the following functions and spaces are also located in what is called the Athenaeum.
    • • an art gallery • a restaurant that serves sandwiches and other light fare • an open forum space that can seat at least 700 people • treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines • studios for the campus radio station • classrooms • a commuter lounge with a full kitchen • a unisex bathroom with a shower

  • Dean Amy Wallace: We have no carrels. We have no separate viewing or listening stations. We check out flip cams, dvd recorder, laptops, etc. So we designed big cabinets in circulation to check out such.
  • The main Learning Commons area offers five service desks:  Reference and Research Assistance, Learning Commons & Technical Support, Academic Advising & Career Services, the Writing Center, and the Assistive Technologies Center. The Reference Desk and the Learning Commons support desks are stationed at either end of the the large public computer area; Academic Advising is centrally located amidst the student login workstations; Assistive Technologies and the Writing Center are located on the periphery of the Commons area. 8 Minutes on Academic Library Building Trends sweeney@njit.edu Richard Sweeney 973-596-3208

    • Academic Library Buildings (Trends):
      • have more mixed use, more hybidization and less traditional spaces.
      • are greener, more frugal, and more sustainable.
      • support more teaching, learning and technology roles: e.g. group study spaces, printing, scanning, media.
      • support more information literacy hands-on instruction & assessment.
      • support Millennial student behaviors giving many more options; mobility; group work; more media; gaming, and interactive.
      • bring fewer researchers into the library.
      • have fewer & smaller physical collections; scholarly communication moves out.
  • “ The university library of the future will be sparsely staffed, highly decentralized, and have a physical plant consisting of little more than special collections and study areas .” That’s what Daniel Greenstein , vice provost for academic planning and programs at the University of California System, told a room full of university librarians Wednesday at Baruch College of the City University of New York, where the higher education technology group Ithaka held a meeting to discuss “sustainable scholarship ”.

  • “ As archives and services at individual libraries shrink, so would their staffs—and so would their operating costs.” Daniel Greenstein , vice provost for academic planning and programs at the University of California System Kolowich, Steve. Libraries of the Future. INSIDE HIGHER ED. Sep 24 2009 http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2009/09/24/libraries
  • “ Within the decade, he ( Daniel Greenstein ) said, groups of universities will have shared print and digital repositories where they store books they no longer care to manage. “There are national discussions about how and to what extent we can begin to collaborate institutionally to share the cost of storing and managing books,” he said. “That trend should keeping continuing as capital funding is scarce, as space constraints are severe, especially on urban campuses — and, frankly, as funding needs to flow into other aspects of the academic program.” Kolowich, Steve.

  • “ The analog counterpart to the DRS is the Harvard Depository (HD) located in the countryside about 45 minutes from Boston. A low, modular building with loading dock bays, it resembles a wharhouse more than anything else…. Just two librarians oversee 7.5 million books held in an energy-efficient, climate-controlled environment—more than twice as many as Widener, which is three times as large.” p. 41 Shaw, Jonathan.
