Key Considerations in Library Planning
MetadataShow full item record
Library planning, from design to move-in, is a complex process involving multiple stakeholders and an array of decisions on widely diverse issues. This presentation addresses key considerations in identifying the parameters and leadership for the project and to establish a checklist of questions other library project plans need to answer. These include: how are your project objectives guided by research on user needs? How are your design choices guided by your project objectives? How will you coordinate with diverse stakeholders over the course of the project? How will you define the planning team? What objectives will you set for the library? On what criteria are your objectives based? How do the project objectives support the mission of the library and the institution? How will you deal with change and manage staff expectations? What communication strategies will you set? How will you encourage the campus community to take ownership of the library space? This presentation was given at the "Undergraduate Library Planning and Revitalization" conference in Boulder, Colorado on March 19, 2007.
