Product description

Library Builders
Various Authors
Publisherd by Academy Editions

Hardback with Dust Jacket. Blue textured paper binding with gilt lettering on spine. Smooth glossy inside pages with colour and black and white illustrations.
Item is in very good condition with very few signs of wear. Minor rubbing to top edge of dust jacket. Very slight warping to page edges.

Information from the dust jacket:

"The historical perception of the library is being undermined by the digital revolution. Some critics say that, in the current information age, the traditional repositories are becoming obsolete mausoleums for books. the contemporary library now has to provide a multitude of services, often at the heart of the community, while remaining flexible enough to adapt to ever-increasing technological demands.

LIBRARY BUILDERS presents over forty contemporary libraries, ranging in scale from the grandeur of national libraries to small, intimate community libraries, from public libraries to university libraries, which feature the different qualities of both the traditional biblioteque and the futuristic mediateque. It examines the potential future of this building type in the twenty-first century, with ever-changing demands for supply and dissemination of information."
