Public Librarian here!
I work for Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library in Evansville, Indiana as Community Inquiry Librarian of Practice responsible for creating the first Community Inquiry Lab in a public library... no pressure there! I have read so much about ABCD and I think this is the perfect tool for the work we hope to achieve and community capital we hope to gain through the labs. I am initially piloting some techniques internally with fellow staff before offering it out to the public. My current project is using the Question Formulation Technique, established by the Right Question Institute, to help staff gain a deeper understanding of our organization's new mission statement, and use the knowledge gained through their questioning to build their own departmental mission statements. Where does ABCD fit in? My hope is that the assets (passions, skills, etc...) the staff members discover in themselves and collectively are used as the building blocks for their statements. I have seen amazing results thus far in terms of staff's meta-cognitive thinking and curiosity, but I have a long way to go! Please share any opinions, questions, advice you may have and I am excited to be part of this community of practice!
