Open: Design and Layout of Libraries

This document will introduce you to the principles of architectural planning and design as applied to libraries. Because architectural design is largely a subjective process, the “casebook” approach is used to illustrate it. In this instance, the architectural design of libraries is the “case” to be discussed. You will learn about space allocation criteria, core functional areas, site evaluation and location, handicapped accessibility issues, sustainable design considerations, general design guidelines, site design, and building design criteria. You will learn criteria for specification of furniture, fixtures and equipment for all of the functional areas in libraries. You will learn how to develop and apply functional relationship diagrams for central information services, central reading areas, public service areas, children's areas, administration, technical services and support activities. This course will give you the fundamentals you need to address library design projects in your day-to-day practice and activities.
