We're excited to announce our first Library 2.018 mini-conference: Design Thinking: How Librarians Are Incorporating It Into Their Practice, which will be held online (and for free) on Thursday, March 8th.
This event is being organized in partnership with Steven J. Bell, who will serve as moderator for the opening panel and as the closing keynote speaker.

When IDEO, a globally recognized design firm, partnered with the Chicago Public Library to create the Design Thinking Toolkit for Libraries it greatly demystified the design thinking process and gave the library community a resource to more easily implement a design challenge in their own organization. Design thinking is a process designers use to thoughtfully identify problems and then, using a team-based approach, develop prototypes useful for implementing an elegant solution. In response to the growing interest in design thinking, this event will provide attendees with both insights into the process and examples of how librarians are integrating it into their practice. If you’ve been hearing about design thinking and want to learn more about how you can develop and lead a design challenge at your library, this is your opportunity.

We invite all library professionals, employers, LIS students, and educators to provide input and participate this event.

This is a free event, being held online.

Participants are encouraged to use #library2018 and #librarydesignthinking on their social media posts leading up to and during the event.
