FutureLib is an open innovation programme exploring the future role of academic libraries within the University of Cambridge. It employs ethnographic research methods and human-centred design techniques to examine current user experience (UX) of libraries and draws on the skills of librarians from around the institution to test new service concepts. It is funded by the University Library and supported by design practice and innovation consultancy Modern Human. Our current projects are exploring: user study preferences and library spaces; supporting Open Access; and how we can make the skills and expertise of librarians more visible.
The programme is led by Sue Mehrer (Deputy Librarian) and is managed by Andy Priestner (FutureLib Project Manager)
