This webinar discusses the different behavior and work patterns we have observed over our 30+ years of designing for libraries and public spaces as well as some of the best solutions for addressing those patterns. Designing for human behavior looks at the odd behaviors we humans exhibit when we are around unfamiliar people and in a strange place. The limbic system in our brains plays a strong role in the idiosyncratic and repetitive behavior patterns we see in libraries and other public spaces. To maximize the effectiveness of libraries and achieve the desired function, we must design with these behavioral patterns in mind. This presentation is intended for library leaders, library facilities staff, and the library design community.
