Planning academic and research library buildings by Philip D Leighton( Book )
3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 1,070 libraries worldwide
The completely updated and expanded edition of this classic text reviews all aspects of planning and construction of academic and research library buildings. Planning a new building that fulfills the needs and expectations of users and staff is a true challenge. New technology has put an increasing burden on library planners to develop a flexible building to accommodate the future library. However, even in the present academic and research library, buildings need to serve dual purposeshouse the collection, support technology, and provide study and research space for users. While these uses are not mutually exclusive, they do require careful planning. The planning process is complicated by the need to budget and control expenses while ensuring that space is available for every library need now and in the foreseeable future. The job of planning and designing a library building often falls on the shoulders of those who have little experience in such a huge undertaking. They are also usually charged with multiple tasks, including budgeting, fundraising, hiring architects and consultants, and then implementing and coordinating the entire process. Because it is so comprehensive, Planning Academic and Research Library Buildings can be used by librarians, planners, architects, designers, consultants, and academic administrators as a complete planning tool. It addresses every planning aspect from the moment the idea of a new building is first conceived until the grand opening. Arranged in the same chronological order as the building planning process, the book explains each step thoroughly and clearly. The book details: * the planning process; * alternatives to a new building; * the building program; * budgeting and expense control; * building additions and renovation; * planning and citing; * design development; * contract documents; and * bidding, legal, and business concerns and construction. The authors explain which questions need to be answered first in the planning process. In addition, the key factors that must be considered when planning a new building are thoroughly explained, such as: * aesthetic and functional concerns; * security; * interior design; * environmental control; * adaptability and support of technology; * housing the collection; and * accommodations for reading. Specific and select library building examples are used to illustrate points and clarify solutions to problems. Appendixes include program examples, formulas and tables, the ALA Building Blocks guideline, and environmental conditions for book preservation. A comprehensive bibliography provides both in print and online resources on building planning. A glossary is included to clarify terms to the variety of users of this book. - Publisher

ARL/RLG interlibrary loan cost study : a joint effort by the Association of Research Libraries and the Research Libraries Group by Marilyn M Roche( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 454 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study is to provide data for making decisions on whether to buy or borrow research materials and whether to use fee-based suppliers or interlibrary loan for obtaining photocopied materials. The study is based on 1991 information collected in a survey of 76 U.S. and Canadian research libraries. The cost per transaction is broken down into the following categories: staff; networks and communications; materials delivery; photocopying; supplies; equipment and software purchase, rental, and maintenance; and direct and indirect charges for borrowing. The study highlights cost differences among geographic regions and between private and public institutions, which are due to variations in staff deployment and salaries, service levels, and numbers of borrowing and lending transactions. Analysis of the data shows that a research library spends on average $18.62 to borrow a research document or article or to purchase a photocopy of the item and $10.93 to lend a document. Staff costs represent about 77% of the cost for borrowing and lending; 16% of the total is for supervisory staff and 61% for nonsupervisory staff. A copy of the survey instrument is appended. (KRN)

Library assessment by Stephanie Wright( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
This SPEC survey was distributed to the 123 ARL member libraries in May 2007. Of those 123 libraries, 73 (60%) completed the survey. The survey results indicate that while a modest number of libraries engaged in assessment activities beyond annual ARL statistics gathering in the 1980s and earlier, the biggest jump in assessment activity occurred between 1990 and 2004. The overwhelming majority of responses indicate the impetus for assessment was service driven and user centered and came from within the library itself rather than from an outside source
