ACRL and LAMA release space planning wiki

ACRL and the Library Administration and Management Association (LAMA) recently released a new resource for architects and others planning higher education library spaces. In response to frequent inquiries for information about planning academic library buildings, the associations have partnered to develop a basic framework for architects, planners and librarians embarking on planning and design of academic libraries. The “ACRL/LAMA Guide for Architects” provides convenient access to standards, guidelines, precedents, user studies, furniture, fixtures, equipment and other pertinent resources. A joint interdivisional committee will maintain the guide and address future issues of mutual concern.

The wiki-based guide is featured as a resource in the American Institute of Architects Community of Practice for Architecture Education at, as well as on the ACRL Web site at
