Here's an extract:

The challenge in designing a perfect training room is to develop an environment for teaching in the library that is more than just user-friendly.

The space must be inspiring and encourage learning.

The space must promote information and media literacy. The environment must enhance the course content and delivery and contribute strongly to the success of the training being conducted.

Space for training and instruction in libraries must provide a motivating and stimulating setting suitable for all users: for children in school libraries, for young people in universities and for adults of all ages in public libraries.
