Library Trends 60 (1) Summer 2011: Library Design: From Past to Present


Library Trends 60 (1) Summer 2011: Library Design: From Past to Present. Edited by Alistair Black and Nan Dahlkild

This issue of Library Trends builds on this burgeoning body of literature [on library design]. Both the geographical reach represented by the sum of the articles and the range of libraries covered is extensive. Whereas other issues of the journal devoted to library planning, standards, and design have focused on the present and the future, this issue, recognizing the importance of the past in understanding the present, links the present to the past. The arrangement of the articles into three parts—the past; past and present; and the present—reflects this.

Library Trends (ISSN 0024-2594) is an essential tool for librarians and educators alike. Each issue thoroughly explores a current topic of interest in professional librarianship and includes practical applications, thorough analyses, and literature reviews. The journal is published quarterly for the Graduate School of Library and Information Science by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
