Facilities Program Plan for the Libraries of the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Mason, Thomas R.; And Others
The product of a combined consultant approach to library evaluation, this report provides an intensive, detailed evaluation of current library conditions, comparison with national norms and peer university libraries, and projections of alternative options for collection growth, user facilities, and staff development translated into building facilities requirements over the next 20 years. The team, composed of a planning and design firm, a program planning and information research firm, architectural planners, and a university library consultant, provides a series of general findings followed by a comparison with 27 other university libraries for planning perspective. Projections to 20 years are made and converted to assignable floor space for users, staff, and services. A final chapter deals with a capital staging plan to finance new construction and renovation. Appendices provide nine tables on the evaluation of current conditions, seven on comparisons with Association of Research Libraries peers, and 19 of projections for University of Missouri-Columbia libraries; floor plans of existing libraries; and a campus map showing existing and potential libraries. More than 30 references are listed. (RAA)
