Book Description :

Pre-circulated papers, comments on these papers, documents compiled as a result of group discussion, and resolutions adopted at Australia's 1980 National Workshop on Joint-Use Libraries are presented. A joint-use library is defined as one in which two or more distinct groups of users are given equal priority in the same premises, the governance of which is cooperatively arranged between two or more separate authorities. Three papers on joint-use libraries in primary and secondary schools (J. D. Dwyer), in colleges (A. J. Brown) and in community centers (G. Fraser) explore the circumstances under which coordinated services may be provided, the requirements which should be fulfilled before a joint function is undertaken, and the legal, contractual and administrative mechanisms necessary to ensure effective and continuing service to both the school/college community and the public at large. In addition to a list of resolutions adopted, documents produced at the workshop include a statement of the aims and objectives of joint-use libraries; a discussion of the optimum conditions for their establishment; and separate considerations of the planning process, contracts, staffing, and administration required for such libraries. Lists of workshop participants and their affiliations, and members of the Australian Advisory Council on Bibliographical Services Working Party on User Needs are appended. (ESR)

Book Description :

In today's economic climate, many libraries are work cooperatively and sharing facilities, staffs, and resources. This book gives you practical examples of how to make joint use a POSITIVE reality! The first book of its kind, Joint-Use Libraries presents nine examples of situations in which libraries of different types share a building. In some cases one library takes the lead and staffs the operation. In other cases, two or more staffs inhabit the same building and divide the work. This essential book illustrates the variety of ways that public libraries, community college libraries, and college/university libraries have found to stretch their resources and better serve their users. This book explores team-based strategies for joint-use libraries and shows how various libraries have addressed questions such as, “Which library's online catalog will be used?” “How will costs for maintenance and utilities be shared?” and “Will there be one integrated staff, or separate staffs inhabiting the same building?” The libraries described range from a very small library shared by Front Range Community College and the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, to a mammoth new joint library now being built in San Jose, California. In Joint-Use Libraries, you'll encounter fascinating case studies of successful joint use that examine: school libraries that double as public library facilities a county-wide public library system in South Florida that has created partnerships with university, community college, public, and private school libraries a joint library located on a Florida community college campus but also serving a major university another joint library on a Washington state campus that is shared by both a university and a community college—with the university acting as primary provider of library services by contract with the community college a three-way library in which a community college, a university, and a public library provide their own staffing, collections, and other resources to offer services in a small community where none of them alone could afford a first-rate facility a complex situation in which St. Petersburg College and the City of Seminole, Florida are building a joint-use facility which will serve not only the city and the college, but will also serve the students of 14 other institutions of higher education a joint-use library where one institution is clearly the senior partner, but a largely new, integrated staff has been hired to minimize resistance to the new joint mission and to serve all users equally and more!

Book Description :

Libraries, museums, and the ways patrons use them have drastically changed in the past decades. Digitization projects, infotainment, and the Internet are redefining the library's and the museum's roles in the community. What are the implications for the future of these institutions? The authors examine, and set out an exciting vision of, a new library-museum hybrid. The juxtaposition of library collections and museum artefacts, they assert, has the potential to create authentic, interactive experiences, and can help establish a distinct, meaningful, and sustainable role for libraries. In the authors' words, libraries can then "reassert themselves as places devoted to contemplation, wonder, knowledge acquisition, and critical inquiry". Commercialization, edutainment, and the library as a learning community are just some of the fascinating topics addressed as the authors explore the future's terrain, and how libraries might situate themselves upon it.

Book Description :

The life expectancy of a typical library is 20 or so years. This useful life can be greatly extended, however, with extensive planning and an informed choice of versatile, adaptable furnishings. Everything you need to know to accomplish this feat can be found within the pages of this volume. Professional, experienced advice and suggestions take the library designer through the entire design process. This book provides a plethora of information from the planning stages through the finished media center—to allow any librarian or architect to make informed, cost-effective decisions. The work begins with the creation of the development team, explains terminology employed by furniture manufacturers and the conventions used for furnishing measurements. Topics covered include the installation of adequate (and stable) shelving; user-friendly seating arrangements; and plans for satisfying ever-increasing technological requirements. Appendices contain a number of checklists covering such areas as the tasks and responsibilities of the development team; evaluations of various work stations and seating options; ADA surveys; and electronic planning. Detailed diagrams and photographs from completed designs are also included. From colors to work spaces and furniture composition, Tish Murphy’s twenty years of experience in the field provides the reader with firsthand knowledge regarding what works and what doesn’t in the world of library furnishings.
