Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Excel at Rearranging Your Library

ncompassLiveMed_thumb.jpgEventually, librarians need or want to rearrange their libraries. Rearranging bits of paper is tricky. Chris Rippel, from the Central Kansas Library System, demonstrates how to use Excel to draw alternative floor plans. His free Excel spreadsheet offers principles and examples for creating layouts that will entice people to move around your library to use more of your collection and library resources. We will talk about powerpaths, signage, display placement and rolling chairs in the stacks. (Links from the show.)
