We are look forward to meeting librarians and trustees at the @ONLibraryAssoc Ontario Library Association Super Conference #OLASC in Toronto this Friday, 3 February.

SCRNgRB_olasc17Slide9Our Session and Workshop  - "Communicate Effectively with Design Professionals" - will introduce and develop the concept of the the Library Building Program Document as a comprehensive method for organizing your library’s requirements and communicating them to library users, board, city or municipal councils and the architect.

We believe that the librarian is the person who should lead the Library Building Project and we do everything we can to support you with tools to help you systematically navigate your Library Building Project. There is no need to reinvent the wheel or feel unsupported.

We help librarians lead the pre-planning phase of the library building project and offer and explain the use of methods and strategies to use throughout the design development phase that help you retain control of your design into the acceptance of construction drawings.

So that you are familiar with the visual language that designers use, we will introduce you to adjacency charts; bubble diagrams; construction drawing schedules and Room Data Sheets . We will workshop three of these with exercises so that all our attendees can get hands on experience of the work involved and gain some experience for when you begin the design conversation with your architect.

Thank you, librarians from the APLL Institute at Southern Ontario Library Service, who participated in our webinar "The Library Program - Roadmap to a successful New Library Building". Or - Architectural Programming, the very short version!

 

We know it was a huge chunk of information to digest. 2014_14July_ScreenShot_WhyDoStratPlan_Wbnr2SOLS

Keep on being your amazing, information-seraching, freedom-loving selves.

Webinar to Clebrate the SOLStice

Tomorrow we have the privilege of conducting for the third time, the first of two updated webinars for the Southern Ontario Library Service SOLS.

2014_SOLS WBNR1 title slide captureWe kick off their Advancing Public Library Leadership (APLL) Institute. A "two year certificate program designed to expand and advance the leadership capacity of public library CEOs and managers. Pronounced 'apple,' the APLL Institute combines the flexibility of online learning with highly interactive classroom sessions."

This webinar gives an overview of The Library Development Guide #5, 2010.  (That) "covers the crucial work of building municipal and community support for a building project based on documenting the community's need for a new or expanded building. 

The process begins with a thorough information gathering process that helps you assess your facility requirements in terms of meeting the future needs of the community, as captured in the librarys strategic plan." Haves and Have Nots

We hope that you can join us and take the opportunity to ask questions and follow the  links provided during the presentation.  We are available throughout the course to help you develop a through undestanding of the importance of leading your Library Building Project.
