Abstract

When asked to review this book I was just coming to the end of a €20 million new building and refurbishment project at NUI Maynooth Library. After living and breathing buildings for more than five years I was curious to see if after reading it would I have done things differently? Later on, I will return to this question. In terms of coverage of aspects of library buildings the book is broad. There are 14 chapters each with extensive and useful references.
