Art Libraries Society of
Space Planners Round Table Meeting
In attendance: Susan Koskinen, Alba Fernandez-Keys, Susan Trauger, Bonnie Reed, Henry Pisciotta, Rijn Templeton, Judy Connorton, Michael Hassett, Cate Cooney.
Meeting was called to order by Co-Moderators Susan Koskinen and Alba Fernandez-Keys at 3:30 PM. The meeting began with individual introductions. Each attendee briefly described the stage of the project at their institutions.
It was suggested by some members to keep a list of resources used during library planning and moving for those who may need this type of information in the future.
Alba Fernandez-Keys (Indianapolis Museum of Art) and Judy Connorton (City College of New York) agreed to be co-moderators for the upcoming year.
Susan Koskinen reminded everyone that the SPRT website can be found at: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/~skoskine/spaceplanners.html . She is willing to host the site for another year but would like another member of SPRT to take over as webmaster. It was also suggested that the SPRT website provide a link to the Association of Architecture School Librarians since many of the AASL papers on planning are available on their site.
Several members brought up questions and received feedback from others in the group. Some of the topics discussed were: how to maintain minimal access and open hours during construction; signage as part of the construction project; library lighting; where does compact shelving fit in the construction budget; hiring professional library movers vs. student workers; libraries with green designs.
Meeting was adjourned at 4:30
