Through its discussions on planning, using space, and selecting equipment and furnishings, this instructive new book provides guidance for those who have little or no experience in designing a facility for a special library--one that serves a corporation, government agency, nonprofit organization, professional society, or a special subject-oriented library located in an academic institution or public library. Creative Planning of Special Library Facilities, with its step-by-step approach, encourages READERS to use creativity, along with common sense in planning facilities for special libraries. Its text is stimulating yet sound, and will serve not only librarians planning new facilities but also those involved in remodeling or renovating existing facilities. The appendices contain descriptions and layouts of four typical libraries, each showing the result of careful, creative planning. For those wishing additional information beyond the references listed in each chapter, there is an extensive annotated bibliography.

Creative Planning of Special Library Facilities is available for classroom adoption. It is an ideal choice for graduate courses in library facility planning or special libraries, such as law or medical libraries. Librarians already working in the field who are involved in continuing education courses would also benefit from this text.
