Key Issues in Building Design

How to get started in planning a project

Based on the IFLA Library Buildings and Equipment Section's LibraryBuilding Guidelines published in 2007, this short publication summarises the key points to take into consideration when designing a new or refurbished library building. The aim of the brochure is not to replace any guidelines or standards but to provide librarians new to working on building projects with the essential facts they need to know.
