Josh Linkner wrote the book Disciplined Dreaming: A Proven System to Drive Breakthrough Creativity in 2011. The book seems to be focused mostly for people in the corporate world, and there are references in the book that show examples relevant to sales, advertising, and marketing professionals. However, there is a good bit of content that can be used by librarians who work in non-profit organizations or higher education.
Do you or your team have a creative technical solution to a problem, creative social solution, or creative policy solutions to a problem? Do you have any creative fundraising ideas? Can you make amazing creative signage for your library? Have you creatively designed a website? Did you employ out of the box thinking? What worked, and what didn’t work? The new Open Access Journal of Creative Library Practice will provide an outlet for librarians and information professionals to describe and encourage greater creativity in library and information center communications, policies, collections, instruction, and other areas of librarianship.
