Module 7: Planning for Participatory Services

Planning for Participatory Services

Technology and libraries in the 21st century are wedded, and this marriage is a long-lasting one. A library that recognizes how technology can improve services for its community is destined for success. No matter what technologies or services you go with, remember to plan with your users in mind.

In this module, we will explore planning for Hyperlinked Libraries. How do we plan effectively for hyperlinked services? How do we balance technolust, institutional mission and the needs of our users? How do we create libraries with a global reach and local focus? The tech will often change but the thoughts about planning, and the way we approach technology, can be more consistent.
