The Journal of Academic Librarianship
...provides much-needed guidance. This book is important because it eschews a formulaic approach and gives us tools needed to reach our own conclusions...recommended for public as well as academic and research libraries.
Library Review [UK]
...a useful point of departure...
LRTS
...easy to read...far more useful than a bibliography. Any librarian or library administrator would be well served by adding this title to his or her collection.

...written to have broad appeal in the library world. Not much of the worthwhile relevant literature available in English seems to have been missed.
Library Quarterly
No aspect of construction for preservation has been ignored. The evaluations of the materials are precisely accurate...publication of this book is a signal event. It is required reading for all librarians who became involved in planning construction and for all library architects.

Libraries and Culture
This book is...a needed resource, existing primarily as a selective annotated bibliography to literature and resources concerning the design and renovation of library and archive buildings and related preservation issues. Useful appendixes include a bibliography of case studies, a bibliography of journals with information pertaining to planning and building library buildings, and a directory of organizations one might contact for information and assistance during the planning process...generally timely and useful, recommended for the library historian researching the history of library building and design and the practitioner involved in planning the design or renovation of a library or archive building...
American Archivist
...summary history is written in a concise manner...should prove especially beneficial for preservationists...
The Library Association Record
Preservation is viewed in the context of a fundamental library activity, as a corollary to it, and emerges as an essential element in library planning...This book is full of useful information and can be read with profit not only by conservation specialists but by librarians generally.
