Summary
You've spent your life working in and coping with your library building... and you've been ignored when it comes to planning the spaces that you work in. Schlipf and Moorman provide their rules for planning and evaluating plans for new buildings and renovations. Building decisions-- whether good or bad-- can last centuries. Discover some of the ways you can reduce your chance of regretting-- or outright hating-- those decisions
