MEDIA REVIEWS
"The appearance of this book is timely....This book has a very useful bibliography, and there are separate lists of manufacturers and associations relating to the furniture industry....The intended audience for this book is public librarians in the US, but there are hints and good advice relevant to librarians in Australia, particularly those who are considering whether to purchase furniture from the showroom or to order specially made items from a manufacturer....The book is not expensive, and because of the useful information it contains it should find a place on the shelves any library serving and institution with an interest in library design and management."-Australian Library Review
"Required reading regardless of the size of your library"-Library Journal
"A good book to consult before making budget requests for new or replacement furniture!"-Canadian Library Journal
"This monograph will help librarians ask intelligent questions of designers and vendors and make informed, cost-conscious decisions."-Specialist Magazine
"Librarians should buy 'Selecting Library Furniture' for it's overview of the building process, and to use it as a reference on specific technical questions about furnishings explained in clear and understandable language."-Public Library Quarterly
"Although Planning Library Interiors has a public library focus, it is also useful for academic or special libraries....For a public library staff contemplating or engaged in renovation or a new building project, this book should be an essential addition to the professional collection. The architect should be asked to read it as well."-American Libraries
..."The discussion of children's furnishings has been expanded into a separate chapter. The discussion of furnishing for electronic equipment has been expanded to describe the way in which plans for furniture can be coordinated with power and data distribution requirements. Significant space has also been devoted to discussion of the Americans with Disablilties Act (ADA) requirements."-The Journal of Academic Librarianship
"Brown does an outstanding job of putting together the basic information librarians need to guide them as they select library furnishings. She describes in thoughtful detail the processes for selecting and purchasing furniture for libraries, the issues of quality construction and other factors that require attention, and the techniques for identifying the kinds of shelving, service desks, chairs, tables and carrels, work surfaces, and signs that will best meet a library's needs."-Wilson Library Bulletin
