  • Description….Collaborating: Students and Libraries: Kurt discusses how librarians at NR were inspired by Apple Stores’ display and customer service model and collaborated to create the @One eReader Bar where users can explore various handheld devices and learn what is possible, including making use of library e-resources via eReaders. The librarians acquired devices; researched, tested, and tracked how each worked and shared their findings with each other; designed an eReader Bar LibGuide; trained additional staff; and created informational materials.
  • Highlights of the proposal
  • Timelapse of the @one area to show appeal of location
  • Design for change/flexibility/responsive/beautiful
  • Exceitment!Design for change/flexibility/responsive/beautifulPeople flock there! They are excited, curious, and engaged in these toolsPlayground-like atmosphere, encouraged to play and touch
  • Together we playedMention who/rolespuuikibeach
  • Easy way to get info about the eReader bar online with lots of different info very quicklyMany authors able to addCollaborative authorship
  • “looks like someone’s stuff” “Backpack dumped out”Students were dubious unsure of ithttp://www.fastcompany.com/1716560/cash-for-clunkers-best-buy-offers-buy-back-program-for-obsolete-electronics
  • What we fixed:-Higher platform-More apple-like display/cleaner look-Added QR code to lead to the libguide-better lighting-positioned sign closer to devices-better location / easily seen near entrance- walk by toward the desk/more traffic-no chairs
  • QR codesStill displayAnimated displayWebsite spot

  • 27.7% increase in length of ave encounter - on average interacting longer with the display30.6%increase in gate count ratio - higher percentage of people coming through the gate are interacting with the displaySignificant jump of both the Poster and the Kindle: from 14.7% to 23.8% when the display relocated to 2nd floor
  • We changed things that worked well but not necessarily for the betterWe did get more traffic at times with the new locationGuarding it did not workhttp://www.regretsy.com/2011/09/14/from-first-steps-to-12-steps/
