|The statewide Building Audit of Victorian Public Libraries report is a key outcome of the online survey completed in 2007 as part of the Building Audit for Victorian Public Libraries Project.
The primary objective of the project was to provide an overview of the current status of public library buildings in Victoria, including trends, analysis and recommendations. The project has collected and presented information through both the statewide report and individual Local Government Authority reports (distributed to each library service in May/June 2008) to enable public libraries in Victoria to compare their library buildings with both published standards (People Places: A Guide for Public Library Buildings in New South Wales) and against the Victorian average.
Also included are case studies of twelve Victorian public library buildings to whet your appetite for what can be achieved.
We envisage the data collected will provide guidance for library managers, architects, planners and council officers working on new, extended or refurbished library buildings.
