The Library Reimagined
Western Sydney University Library encompasses the six physical libraries – Campbelltown, Hawkesbury, Liverpool, Milperra, Nirimba, Parramatta City, Parramatta South, Penrith and the Online Librarian.
The Library Reimagined project emerged alongside planning for the Whitlam Library (Parramatta South) refurbishment process, the Library of the Future.
Three core questions were explored:
• what’s working/not working: what should the library Stop Doing, Start Doing, Keep Doing
• what’s radical: ideas that stretch the boundaries of what’s possible; reimagining the library service model without constraints
• what do we stand for/stand up for: values and deep-seated philosophies; what does/should the library stand for, and what should it stand up for.
Insights into a reimagined service model were produced. The process was highly collaborative and democratic.
