Robert Goodman wrote:My group and I decided to do the “brandstorming” rule and used Ikea as our brand. I jotted down our ideas and this is what we came up with:-Various small, open spaces in the way of Ikea’s walkthrough displays. The genius of Ikea’s design is that you have to walk past every display before getting to the end. You may go into Ikea only looking for a bookshelf, but being that you walk along one path, one may wind up leaving with a lot more than what they had intended to buy. Imagine this concept applied to a library.-Rather than the pencil and paper Ikea provides, we thought about having a swipe card for each resource/display area. The customer can swipe as they go and then collect their resources at the end!-Instead of having a heavy reliance on just text we also want to incorporate visuals/aesthetics. Although we would be providing books and NOT hard to assemble furniture, we all like the idea behind Ikea’s image only instructions; that anyone globally (in theory!) regardless of literacy level can follow their instructions.I think we all loved the idea of people being able to enjoy nice aesthetics but also being able to handpick and craft their own experience based upon their individual needs.
Role Storming - technique (roles and ideas)
No sharp edges, window seats, low bookcases, teashops & scones, vegetable garden. rabbits, tea cozies
Gardening and keeping animals
Temperance Brennan (Bones) -
laboratory for dissecting the rabbits
fridge to keep the deceased rabbits
coroner's lab for how rabbits died
soft rock and jazz music
learning for young minds - dissecting the rabbits
Henry - 10 year old boy
Place to bring people together - large family intergenerational meeting rooms
Projects to make intergenerational rooms
Accessibility for all in need (ADA compliant)
Fantasy - all kinds of fantasy
As many cultures involved as possible
Technology to explore
Captain Kirk would need a nice chair - for his information section
And he would need a Spock

We did a Brand Storming based on Disney. Here is our list:
- Seamless, perfect user interface- Catchy theme song-Family friendly, inclusive-Clean-Very intuitive interface, easy to use.-Fun, colorful-Premium services-Interactive games, Lots of playing-Consistently focused ideas- Mascots- A tablet-device could contain a lot of our Disney-branded content- Things to do while you’re waiting for your content- Use the computers in the library for things they weren’t designed for.- More than just research.. Games, movies, etc.- Wayfinding would be super important, undetectable

Amazon designed library
personal recommendations important
all things, not just traditional materials
allowing purchase and rental from the same place
warehouse predicting for stock- nobody should have to wait for things
not returning items to home libraries, where ever it's returned that's where it stays
kiosks/lockers for pickup everywhere
Own proprietary products for using our services
massive data/usage tracking and assessment
self publishing - print on demand - marketplace for patron created content as part of the
ability to make and share lists- reader's advisory, patrons are their own experts
brand driven content creation - tv shows, patrons can vote for the stuff they want to continue

Facilitators for additional vendors/services
Open market place
Library as a distributor
Amazon's mission fits perfectly with libraries...user centric
Keep more info on libraries
Recommendations on what a user has read/borrowed
Streamline customer service
Squash local business
Drone delivery system
Hierarchy of users (prime vs Joe Schmo)
Greater access to additional media
Reorganization by categories
Localized community directory
Exclusivity of certain resources ( ex. Author only read

Here are our role storming ideas. We did technology in libraries as it would be done at Ikea:Allison Parker wrote:

Arrows on the floor
Tour through all departments
Big huge screen/monitor at the entrance with highlights, directions
Cutesy names for everything.
Difficult to follow instruction sheets
Talk to a gadget, get navigational tips
Gaming room for kids while parents are on computers - ball room to keep kids busy
Augmented reality where you can look at photos of your place and see how the item will appear in your house.
Virtual Skype style library staff available at all spots.
Create spaces where people feel at home using technology - comfortable, welcoming maker spaces, computer instruction and labs.
Easy download from anywhere, scan and send to self
Lots of self service
Electronic shopping cart to collect your materials and information
Clear simple branding - blue/yellow example.
Family friendly. Place hops with families.
Place to eat, use tech, relax.
Lots of variety - big stuff, little stuff, trinkets.
[Place] where you can use lots of different types of technology.

- Very visual
- Comfort in consistency. Battling against different approaches of service at different locations
- Comfort food – comfortable space. Homey environment – digital and physical space
- Easy navigation. Keep it simple!
- Anticipating problems
- Adapting recipes // adapting tech resources for personal use. One product can be used in many ways
- Digital signage – keep the brand consistent
- Online contests – valuing all cooks in “kitchen

Story based tutorials
Use tech from Ursala’s point of view
Bring the story outside of the book (screens)
Patrons have more access to do the creating with multi-media
Virtual library with neighborhoods
Have a kids’ area that is a space related to a particular book/character and integrates tech
Hand held concierge devices to lead thru library
Characters do book reviews
Librarians become characters tied to specific technology services
Make checking out more seemless-no need for a library card
Use technology to be entertaining inside the library and pique curiosity about something within the library
Have a tech event that would be multi-media and motivates library use
