Abstract:

Redesigning the college library building is a successor report to the study of Academic Library Building Renovation Benchmarks and looks closely at the expansion and alteration plans of American college libraries. The study presents detailed data on capital spending current practices and future plans, specifying investment intent in critical areas such as information technology, new buildings, energy saving technology, furniture, "information commons" and other technology centers, auditoriums and classroom space, staff offices and collection storage space, among others. This highly detailed 225+ page report includes details on purchases of artwork for the library, uses and planned uses of external space, frequency of use of architects and other services, and much more. The study presents an array of data on the current and expected impact of digitization of collection content on use of library space, as well as specific information on assessing the results of major renovation projects. Data in the report is based on a survey of 45 North American colleges; data is broken out by size and type of college, and by budget for renovation or alteration projects -- Publisher's website.
