Lushington's experience as library design consultant, library director, and associate professor shines through in this practical, comprehensive guide. He uses numerous illustrations of library plans and equipment to show a variety of solutions to design questions. The book is organized into four major sections: "Essential Background" (history, trends, and design criteria); "Planning Process"; "Planning for Specific Functions"; and "Library Design Sources." The last has models, samples, specifications, and suppliers. This guide should be useful whether planning for the new or remodeled library. Marilyn Long
