LLAMA Webinar Helps You Navigate through Physical and Virtual Library Planning

The library of the future needs to be a vibrant learning hub and an intellectual crossroads where the physical and the virtual spaces connect. The transition from a physical library plan into a blended service model requires a solid methodology. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present a new webinar, “Physical and Virtual Library Planning,” on Wednesday, August 29, from 1:30 to 3:00 pm Central Time.

Description: During this webinar, participants will gain a better understanding of challenges and opportunities for change. They will be introduced to a framework for developing a GAP analysis and examples of past projects. This will help participants define what their library user needs and what is possible. The webinar introduces new ways of thinking about library planning including:

• Visual Literacy – seeing and integrating sensory experience
• Digital Reproduction Literacy – involving text media and sound
• Hyper-Media Literacy – Multi-domain thinking with an interconnected
• narrative.
• Socio-Emotional Literacy – interpret media sound and text
• Information Literacy – evaluate and apply new knowledge

At the end of this webinar participants will:
• Understand how to do a user needs/gap analysis for the physical and virtual
library.
• Be familiar with examples of virtual library services and in-person presence
options.
• Know new strategies that will help librarians develop physical and virtual
library services.
• Have a clearer understanding of opportunities to improve organizational transformation.
