Although much has been achieved in this regard across the UK, more continues and needs to be accomplished.The aim of this case-study publication is to provide librarians, architects and others with examples of what has been undertaken and to highlight the policies, processes, design issues - and the problems that have been overcome - leading to successful library refurbishments. While the case studies will be mainly drawn from the UK and will cover a variety of library types, the book will have wide international appeal and includes case studies drawn from Ireland, Sweden and the USA.
