Building Libraries and Library Additions: A Selected Annotated Bibliography

ALA Library Fact Sheet 11

Building new libraries, additions, and even remodeling can be a daunting task, and one that most librarians do not undertake frequently. This fact sheet provides references to the tools, resources, and advice to help you manage your library building project, whether large or small. Although this list has been segmented by types of libraries–academic (college/university) libraries (along with a section on planning archives and off-site shelving), public libraries, and school libraries–materials listed for one type may have useful information for planning other types of buildings. And the end of this page now includes resources for planning specialized areas within libraries, such as areas for children, teens/young adults or seniors, and on building joint-use libraries.

Also see the Buildings page from the ALA Professional Tips Wiki.

The Buildings and Facilities section of the ALA Online Store quickly links to ALA’s own print books, e-books, eCourses, and webinars on these subjects.
