  1. 1. 2015 Bonisteel Library Annual Report Igniting a lifelong passion for the arts Bonisteel Library 9900 Diamond Park Rd. Interlochen, MI 49643 T 231.276.7420 library-help@interlochen.org http://library.interlochen.org Interlochen Center for the Arts
  2. 2. Introduction The focus of this first year has been to explore informally the library experience of the user from the lens of the institution’s core purpose: to ignite lifelong passion for the arts. As a new director, with a new technical librarian and a new archivist on staff it has helped keep our perspectives fresh, but it has also been crucial to have insights from the experience and expertise of our archivist-historian, music librarians and support staff. We are trying to understand our users experience as they enter and interact in the physical space and the online space. Our inquiry involves some of the following: • Why do our users come to the library? • How do our users find a comfortable and productive space to work in the li- brary; find and access the online library page and catalog, and find a book, informa- tion, or equipment? • What are they using when they are in the physical and online space? • Ultimately, do our users leave satisfied with the services of our library from their uses and experience with the facility and technology, the breadth of the collection, and attention from staff? • Using the language of the institution’s core values—are our library users inspired, nurtured, transformed, en- lightened and leave with en- during skills? As we have been making these inquiries we also recognize we are not alone. We have a fabulous support system throughout the institution and are trying to interact and work in the best way with the backing and collaboration of the institution’s administration, educa- tion, technology, marketing, fi- nance, human resources, mainte- nance, advancement, presenta- tions, and program departments.
