  18. 18. Project team: industry, libraries and research institutions Goal: increase interest for the library and reading visualise information and the use of new technology Method: observations, field studies, video sessions, drawing sessions, brainstorming, sketching, Wi d of O bodystorming, prototyping, user testing k t hi Wizard f Oz, b d t i t t i t ti

  20. 20. Workshop brainstorming sessions- based on findings from children’s libraries- mixing industry, research and libraries- creating a common understanding through sketches ti d t di th h k t h
  21. 21. Concept sketching- sketches as inspirational boundary objects- sketches for internal and external communication- sketching the intended interaction k t hi th i t d d i t ti
