Overview

Countdown to a New Library presents all of the need-to-knows for designing and constructing a library for the future." "Writing from the perspective of a librarian who has been through the building wars and survived to tell about it, Jeannette Woodward walks you through the process of overseeing the planning and construction of a building that meets the changing needs of both customers and staff. Packed with helpful suggestions and precautions, this "hard hat" book is an indispensable resource for learning how to: "talk the talk" constructively with architects and builders; plan expertly for technology access; incorporate key building concerns for security, electrical, HVAC, lighting, roofing, and ADA requirements; and keep the project on track and on budget." "Using the hands-on tips and real-life insider stories from librarians around the country, Countdown to a New Library is a crash course in planning and building the modern library.

For librarians going through a big-budget, long-term building project, veteran librarian Woodward (Wayne State U.) provides a roadmap in lay terms for everything from blueprints to the final move. She emphasizes the importance of communicating such concerns as users' needs, budget parameters, safety, security, and practical design to the people engaged in the actual design and construction.
