AbstractDesign thinking can offer a new way of thinking about, acting on, and implementing our resources and services with a more thoughtful and creative approach that is focused on the design of the best possible library user experience. @ your library My first encounter with the application of design thinking in a library setting was the Maya Design firm's renovation and remodeling of the main branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. [...] librarians can still make use of design thinking in reengineering how users navigate the library and its electronic resources.\n Books and articles by and about design thinkers, such as the The Art of Innovation, can provide greater detail and more concrete examples of how design thinking is applied to the creation of products and services. The Blended Librarians Online Learning Community at blendedlibrarian .org is a free community open to all that is justbeginningto explore ways in which design thinking can be applied to further collab oration with community partners and help students achieve academic success.
