Rachel Ivy Clarke‘s Twitter bio reads: “Librarianship isn’t rocket science. It’s not even library science. Fight me.” So it makes perfect sense that she has written a primer on Library Design Thinking and how the trend applies to libraries and librarianship. The 80-page soft cover book “Design Thinking” was published in December as part of ALA-Neal-Schuman’s Library Futures Series.

Design thinking is a method of human-focused, creative problem solving that has historically been used in the fields of management and design. In the library realm, design thinking encourages institutions to better understand the needs of their users, face complex and varied challenges with new tools and approaches, dig deep to discover what their communities want and experiment and innovate to create services and programs to meet changing times and needs. 

Clarke says design thinking can make libraries better through strategic, creative problem solving. “My big point is reinventing libraries as design sites,” Clarke says. “How can we make the best possible things? The way to do that is to look to the field of creation. That’s the way people are going to create better tools and programs and services.”
