International Federation of Library Associations, The Hague (Netherlands).
Papers on library architecture, which were presented at the 1982 International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) conference focus on the effect of library networks on library design. Topics include: (1) "Some Problems in Designing of the University Library Buildings in China: A Developing Country University Librarian's View Based on His Own Experience," a discussion by Zhu Chenggong (People's Republic of China) of library facilities at the Tsing Hua (Qing Hua) University Library, located in Peking, and the need for comparison with library building design in other countries, flexibility in library space design, and cooperation between librarians and architects in designing libraries; (2) "Library Buildings in the Network Context: A Canadian Architect's Perspective" by Michael G. Werleman (Canada), which considers the responsibilities of librarians, library building consultants, and architects in library building design, and gives an example of flexible space design for a mixed-use building at Concordia University which will contain both library and non-library space; and (3) "Library Buildings in the Network Context," a discussion by Margaret Beckman (Canada) of the implications of changing information technologies and increasing library network participation on library collection space and access, staff space and organization, user needs, changing library functions and functional relationships, and mechanical/electrical/structural considerations in building design.
