Persuasive Design in the Theological Library

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Libraries are places in which our patrons do not simply seek information; they seek a change in their life through knowledge, skill, and formation. Theological libraries are integral components of a larger organization aimed at training students to perform in ministry settings in many situations from churches to classrooms, counseling offices and more. Persuasive design in a library space and library online services can prove to be important in higher education. Unlike the marketing of doughnuts or cigarettes we know that the behaviors we seek to increase in our patrons are truly in their best interests. The behavioral design theories and the behavioral change models of B. J. Fogg, Stephen Wendel, and Stephen Anderson provide a starting point for persuasive design in technologies that we can use in theological library settings. This presentation will introduce persuasive design concepts and persuasive technologies already in use in common society and demonstrate the ways in which theological libraries can apply these technologies and concepts in the design and implementation of services, programs, technologies, and facilities.
