Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive "hardhat" book uses real-life insider stories from librarians around the country to help you to identify key building areas for security, electrical, HVAC, lighting, roofing, and ADA requirements.

Book News Annotation:

For librarians going through a big-budget, long-term building project, veteran librarian Woodward (Wayne State U.) provides a roadmap in lay terms for everything from blueprints to the final move. She emphasizes the importance of communicating such concerns as users' needs, budget parameters, safety, security, and practical design to the people engaged in the actual design and construction.
