The Guideline has been compiled for Designing Libraries by sponsor Demco Interiors.

Designing libraries has become much more complex over recent years with the introduction of shared services, self-service, merchandising and e-books, so the scope for designing a library space is much broader and needs to take a strategic, collaborative approach.

The guide covers all the essential steps in managing a successful project, beiginning with forming the project team, understanding the budget, consultation and time planning before addressing the key principles of creating the design brief and managing internal and external relationships.

This Essential Design Guideline will give you the basics of project planning and management, based on Demco's extensive experience of interior design and furnishing projects in all types of libraries.
