Shanghai Library Innovation Space

The public library in Shanghai, China has used the Design Thinking for Libraries toolkit to redesign public areas in their library. One of the designers from the project Sheng-Hung Lee said: "The Future Learning Experience of Public Area - Redesign Shanghai Library Innovation Space is a project based on human-centered thinking that covers every aspect of the Shanghai Library Innovation Space (the Space), from the individual, product, organization, and space, to the service and experience it offers. The purpose of the redesign lies in making knowledge come alive and flow freely so that users can learn and experience in the Space what extends beyond the library. A more enriching learning experience for readers, in turn, testifies to librarians’ greater role in this process."
