The IFLA Library Buildings & Equipment Section

The Section considers all matters concerning the design and construction for all types of libraries in all parts of the world, and their furnishing and equipment. The Section aims to collect and disseminate knowledge about buildings and equipment in order to increase this knowledge among librarians. It also aims to establish better contacts between librarians and architects by creating the conditions under which it will be possible for each of them to understand the other’s language, by promoting an exchange of experiences between librarians and architects.

This blog contains postings on matters related to library design. The content is primarily prepared by members of the Standing Committee of the IFLA Library Buildings and Equipment Section. Suggestions for topics and potential postings from interested people would be appreciated (please see Blog Guidelines). The blog also contains items relevant to the work of the Section and to events relating to the Section, particularly the IFLA annual Congress. The blog is kindly managed by Maynooth University Library.
