User Centered Work Spaces : : Haagse Bakkies

Haagse Bakkies (Hague less than half filled cup of coffee) is another installation by the Open Digital Libraries under the name «user centered work spaces». This time curated by Huibert Crijns, Dirk Huijsmans and Jessica Wevers of KB National Library.

The nuclear energy debate of the 1980s is depicted on the Haagse Bakkies installation. This was made in collaboration with the students of the Industrial Design program at the Technical University of Delft. They used the rich digital newspaper collection in Delpher as a source for the content of the exhibition. The students thus send visitors on a journey of discovery and ensure that they discuss provocative and social topics with an open and curious attitude.

The exhibition shows what an exciting sanctuary the library is. A place where everyone is welcome to research any topic and explore new perspectives on controversial debates. The library is a haven for freedom of expression.
The intention of the installation is to give visitors all sides of the story by showing different perspectives on a subject. This is also represented by the different silhouettes of the heads on the posts. By making all voices heard, the visitor is helped to create a complete and well-founded opinion.

The expo can be visited in November and December 2022 at KB, national library of the Netherlands.

QUATTUOR AMICIS

Alba Amicorum [2022]

A cooperation of the National Library of the Netherlands [KB] and the Royal Academy of Art [KABK], The Hague.

16 second year students of the Interactive / Media / Design [IMD] department developed interactive spatial experiences for the visitors of the KB by exploring the unique collection of the alba amicorum collection. These are friendship books from the 16th century and later, which can be seen as the precursors of today’s social media.

Springtime is the right time for exchange

In Vienna ODL project members exchanged ideas and good laughs

In May ODL project teams gathered in Vienna for a workshop

Finally, after a long pandemic the teams gathered on site in Vienna. On the 17th and 18th of May, ODL team members from the KB and the Estonian National Library visited the Austrian National Library for a two-days workshop.
The workshop format offered the possibility to apply different tools from the design thinking and gamestorming toolbox in order to reflect upon our work accomplished and the steps ahead.
“Learning from each other” is a core “brick of ODL”. This includes not only the success stories but also challenges and pitfalls, though we are “facing similar problems”. You guess right! The “ODL tower” stood until the end.

After nearly two years of remote exchange over online applications, we really took advantage of using paper, sticky notes, whiteboards and a Jenga tower ;-).
The exchange meeting was also a good opportunity to evaluate the status at midterm and to discuss the workpackages ahead.
We are very much looking forward to the next exchange meeting at the KB!
