At an uncertain and challenging time for libraries, the new-look Designing Libraries website is a showcase for new investment and innovation.
With its many examples of inspiring and functional library buildings,
Designing Libraries has long been an important and well-used source of
information for anyone planning a new library or a library refurbishment.
Its database forms a current and permanent record of design
development and innovation for both public and academic libraries.
The new website aims to build on the site’s achievements and reputation
as a collaborative resource by providing even more online resources, a
regular newsletter and a greater international perspective. During 2012 it
will expand its coverage to include design developments in school
Designing Libraries Executive Director, David Lindley, says: “Even though
I have been close to the library sector for many years, in the process of
developing the website content I have been astonished by both the
current level of investment in library building infrastructure and the
innovation we are seeing in libraries of all types. It is heartening to know
we are able to combine vision, leadership and originality in ways that
promise a great – if very different – future for our libraries.”
