Academic Library design

"The library has moved from a place to get information to a place to gain knowledge. The library must compete for students' time; it does this by providing superior of hard-to-find technology, group and individual spaceconducive to study and research, and librarians to guide and vacilitate access to knowledge."

David C. Martin, design principal at A.C. Martin Parners, about the $91-million renovation and expansion at Cal Stat U at Fresno, quoted from pg 21 of American Libraries, April 2006.
