WHAT WE DID
CILAB, together with the other project partners, helps teams of designers and librarians in developing new services for libraries in order to better attain EU patrons needs. The method is based on design thinking tools applied to libraries contexts. Workshops and mentoring are used as means to support learning of the methods, following the teams in every step of the process from inspiration, to ideation and iteration.
Based on Innovation Toolkit for Global Libraries. The meaning of this toolkit is is to help libraries serve and connect with their patrons and their communities in more impactful ways. The project resulted in a replicable and scalable model of innovation that includes frameworks, tools, and strategies for creating and sustaining more flexible and responsive cultures within libraries and across the field of global librarianship
To share best practices and to exchange knowledge, creating a libraries network across Europe that promotes partecipatory design thinking process through collaboration with citizens. The goal is to elaborate innovative services and a new mind-set in the cultural sector
