    • Design your library’s future: Stand in that future Page 1 Close your eyes. Place yourself in 2015 or 2016. Visualize the library, probing the details with these types of questions:  What does the library look like to you in 2015 or 2016? What is happening in the library?  How is the library engaged with the community or campus? Physically? Virtually?  What are people in the community or on campus saying about the library?  What are politicians and community leaders or faculty or management saying about the library?  What is staff saying about the library? What is staff doing, or how they engaged in the library, & with users?  How is the library impacting users? What has changed for the library since 2010? What is the same for the library? Consider users – services – spaces (virtual & physical) – Consider users – services – spaces (virtual & physical) – processes – etc. processes – etc.
