'This is a timely and very useful work. Through its breadth it manages to consider comprehensively the full spectrum of issues which we as librarians face when dealing with our beloved and occasionally beleaguered physical space. It should prove of value to those who are involved in any aspect of the library's space - from the person considering a new configuration for a print collection or teaching room, through to those who are embarking on a major new building programme. When one considers how the pace of change seems to be ever increasing, it seems logical to assume that its impact will continue to be felt in all aspects of our work. In terms of the physical library, this book can act as a valuable aid.' Ariadne 'This is essential reading for campus managers, those in leadership roles, and postgraduate library management courses.' Managing Information '... a very practical and useful collection that performs a valuable service in drawing attention to the complexity of designing effective university library spaces.' Australian Academic & Research Libraries '... University Libraries and Space in the Digital World provides a very useful overview of the evolution of the use of physical space in university libraries.' SCONUL Focus 'University Libraries and Space in the Digital World is one of the few publications attempting to address an international audience regarding space planning. It is well conceived and well written. I recommend it for academic librarians of all types including university librarians, who are engaged in space planning now...' Libraries and the Academy ' ... provides a window into nearly all of the issues that affect university libraries today. In light of this, I would recommend it to new professionals entering the HE sector as well as to those with a particular interest in library spaces.' Library and Information Research
