Library Buildings and Equipment Section

Division: Support of the Profession

The Section considers all matters concerning the design and construction for all types of libraries in all parts of the world, and their furnishing and equipment. The Section aims to collect and disseminate knowledge about buildings and equipment in order to increase this knowledge among librarians. It also aims to establish better contacts between librarians and architects by creating the conditions under which it will be possible for each of them to understand the other's language, by promoting an exchange of experiences between librarians and architects.
