Planning academic and research library buildings by Philip D Leighton( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The completely updated and expanded edition of this classic text reviews all aspects of planning and construction of academic and research library buildings. Planning a new building that fulfills the needs and expectations of users and staff is a true challenge. New technology has put an increasing burden on library planners to develop a flexible building to accommodate the future library. However, even in the present academic and research library, buildings need to serve dual purposeshouse the collection, support technology, and provide study and research space for users. While these uses are not mutually exclusive, they do require careful planning. The planning process is complicated by the need to budget and control expenses while ensuring that space is available for every library need now and in the foreseeable future. The job of planning and designing a library building often falls on the shoulders of those who have little experience in such a huge undertaking. They are also usually charged with multiple tasks, including budgeting, fundraising, hiring architects and consultants, and then implementing and coordinating the entire process. Because it is so comprehensive, Planning Academic and Research Library Buildings can be used by librarians, planners, architects, designers, consultants, and academic administrators as a complete planning tool. It addresses every planning aspect from the moment the idea of a new building is first conceived until the grand opening. Arranged in the same chronological order as the building planning process, the book explains each step thoroughly and clearly. The book details: * the planning process; * alternatives to a new building; * the building program; * budgeting and expense control; * building additions and renovation; * planning and citing; * design development; * contract documents; and * bidding, legal, and business concerns and construction. The authors explain which questions need to be answered first in the planning process. In addition, the key factors that must be considered when planning a new building are thoroughly explained, such as: * aesthetic and functional concerns; * security; * interior design; * environmental control; * adaptability and support of technology; * housing the collection; and * accommodations for reading. Specific and select library building examples are used to illustrate points and clarify solutions to problems. Appendixes include program examples, formulas and tables, the ALA Building Blocks guideline, and environmental conditions for book preservation. A comprehensive bibliography provides both in print and online resources on building planning. A glossary is included to clarify terms to the variety of users of this book. - Publisher

Restructuring academic libraries : organizational development in the wake of technological change by Charles A Schwartz( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Restructuring Academic Libraries: Organizational Development in the Wake of Technological Change is a collection of nineteen essays and case studies about the challenges libraries face today. It assesses a broad range of opportunities and achievements. It emphasizes both the theory and practice of boundary spanning to: integrate previously independent library units, ally the library and the computing center, develop state and regional consortia, and enhance the academy's contribution to society at large." "Without such efforts, libraries would face organizational decay, primarily a loss of relevance on campus. With such efforts, libraries can take the lead in adapting information technology to higher education."--Jacket
