TOP LIBRARY BUILDING TRENDS

A program called "Top Library Building Trends" that was conducted at ALA Annual 2010 (June 28, 2010) by LLAMA BES.

A panel of architects, librarians and consultants will provide an overview of new and exciting ideas in planning public and academic library facilities. Topics will include the rethinking of spaces for services, new building design, and other “must have” items to keep your library up-to-date. Each panelist will provide a brief presentation with slides. The entire panel will then field questions from the audience.

Speakers: Kimberly Bolan Cullin, Providence Associates LLC, Indianapolis, IN; Joan Frye Williams, Sacramento, CA, Library Consultant and Futurist; Barbara Norland, District of Columbia Public Library, Senior Librarian, Building Projects; Jeffrey Scherer, Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. Architects, Architect; Richard Sweeney, New Jersey Institute of Technology, University Librarian.

  28. 28. Hi. I’m Kim Bolan Cullin. A stunningly realistic drawing, isn’t it?
  29. 29. It’s time to talk about… SPACE
  30. 30. Uh… wrong space.
  31. 31. How about… Library Space BUMMER
  32. 32. <ul><li>Episode X </li></ul><ul><li>Libraries: A New Hope </li></ul><ul><li>A long time ago…. </li></ul><ul><li>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… </li></ul>
  33. 33. Great library space is more than architecture & furniture.
  34. 34. Space is a launch pad… for a lean, mean, service machine!
  35. 35. Hell, yeah!
  36. 36. Libraries… THE FINAL FRONTIER. And a space where people want to be!
  37. 37. It’s time to rethink “traditional” library service!!!!
  38. 38. And that means we need to talk about the… 4F S
  39. 39. A.K.A. F UNCTION F LEXIBILITY F ORM F EEDBACK
  40. 40. Let’s put the FUN in Fun ction
  41. 41. Put your personal biases & expectations aside and ask yourself, “ What do your users need & want most?” Rebels!
  42. 42. Browseable collections put materials within arms reach.
  43. 43. 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)
  44. 44. As your community “grows up” the spaces they use should grow too.
  45. 45. Build Multi-functional, Zoned Children’s Spaces And they will come!
  46. 46. Pre-school Ages 0 - 4
  47. 47. Young School Aged Ages 5 - 8
  48. 48. Pre-teen Ages 9 - 12
  49. 49. 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!
  50. 50. Separate, Interactive Teen Spaces
  51. 51. Think… variety in size & function, flexibility, capability. FLEX Meeting Spaces
  52. 52. This space has it all!
  53. 53. Orange County (FL) Library System Big service desks be gone! Smaller kiosks encourage interaction! RIP Big Desk!
  54. 54. Supported Self-Service… Provides fast & convenient access for checkout, holds pick-up, and more!
  55. 55. Drive up services add convenience. Can I get fries with that fiction?
  56. 56. Digital Creativity Spaces let users explore technology in new ways.
  57. 57. And…it doesn’t have to take place “in a room.”
  58. 58. Let’s talk about SPACE & SIGNS. I’m a Pisces! Not that sign.
  59. 59. Excellent, clear signage guides patrons to where they’d like to be.
  60. 60. Eliminating jargon lets customers understand the library.
  61. 61. Digital Signage spreads messages quickly .
  62. 62. Flexibility enhances functionality
  63. 63. Flexible spaces grow, move, and change on a daily basis to fit your ever changing needs.
  64. 64. Casters let space move to accommodate different arrangements, events, etc.
  65. 65. Flexibles spaces don’t just look cool…
  66. 66. They can also be adapted today, tomorrow, and even after 5 years without significant $$$$ investment! Like a librarian high roller!
  67. 67. Form Adds Appeal
  68. 68. Furniture , color & lighting are essential. Ooooo... PRETTY.
  69. 69. New seating Color + Lighting Transformed Space Simple changes can have a huge impact.
  70. 70. Make your library a place where people want to be.
  71. 71. Feedback enables users to shape space
  72. 72. The 4Fs work together… And user feedback moves them all forward!
  73. 73. Get user input & show them the possibilities
  74. 74. Online discussion forums & surveys enable even your busiest users to provide input.
  75. 75. Eye-catching, informative (and humorous) presentations grab your patrons’ attention & educate them . Aliens get attention!

  83. 83. &quot;It struck me as an important concept,&quot; Mr. Ungar says. &quot;You don't diminish the importance of the library by putting other things in it.&quot; 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
  84. 84. “ 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?

  90. 90. 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.

  97. 97. “ I think that's not a very accurate depiction of what I see happening at research libraries,” said Deborah Jakubs, vice provost for library affairs at Duke University. “I see the exact opposite happening, that libraries are taking on new roles — [such as] working with faculty in introducing technology into teaching... there's a lot more intersection with libraries and faculty than he (Greenstein) would lead you to believe.” Kolowich, Steve.

  112. 113. “ 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 ”.

  114. 115. “ 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.
