Design tool kit from IDEO

Aarhus Public Libraries has in collaboration with the international design firm IDEO and Chicago Public Libraries developed a toolkit for libraries. With the toolkit you will be guided through the methods of creating services and interior design to suit users' needs.
The innovation model is developed based on human-centered design and was released in late 2014 as a digital book - a toolkit designed to help public libraries worldwide to create the interior design and services that suit users.

IDEO toolkit is based on input and project experiences from among others Aarhus Public Libraries and provides many specific ideas on how it can be used, but there are also very useful knowledge about design thinking and human-centered design.
