  • Description

New technology and aging buildings are making library facility management more complex and difficult than ever before. Many librarians have inherited buildings that not only need to be retrofitted for today's technology, but also require repair and replacement of basic systems. The handbook was written by a Director and a professional facilities manager to provide the practical advice, techniques, and solutions library managers need to ensure that their facilities can function for their intended purposes. Chapters cover planning and evaluating, security and safety, lighting, climate control, parking, access, costs and finances, preventive maintenance and repairs, record-keeping, contracts, bidding, specifications, and much more. An extensive glossary of terms provides the language needed to communicate with facilities staff and contractors. Every library manger will want to use this unique handbook to ensure that the environment of their library seamlessly supports each aspect of its mission.
