It’s a Conversation

I have spent the morning reading a report about the Mindspot project, from the Aarhus Library in Denmark. If you’re not ready to read the 33 page report (it’s worth your time…), then take a peek at this YouTube video first, Mindspot the Movie: The Library as a Universe.

The project is all about turning the library into an “interesting and relevant partner in the lives of young people.” It is is one of the best examples of being “user-centered” that I have seen. It’s exciting to see this type of approach in practice!

The book I am writing is about creating user centered technology services in libraries and this project represents the ideas I’m trying to express… continuous conversation. Hmm… now I just need to find a way to travel to Denmark to visit this library.

  1. My aunt & uncle live in Copenhagen, so if you need a travel mate, let me know and we can try to stay with them. 🙂
