AALL Spectrum 10th Annual Architecture Series

The May 2010 issue of the AALL Spectrum features a number of stories about law library renovations, redesigns and relocations.

From the introduction:
"Not surprisingly given the down economy, the 10th edition of the Annual Architecture Series received far fewer submissions than last year, with none coming from public or governmental law libraries. Also disappointingly, a law firm that had
completed a very clever remodel had to withdraw its submission—firm management objected because, contrary to initial plans, the remodel did not include new furniture."

"Nonetheless, the stories that follow are a rollercoaster of updating, relocating, and even completely overhauling libraries. One library moved across the street, while another moved 30 miles to its new location. Regardless of the distance, the building and remodeling projects in this issue continue to demonstrate the exceptional problem solving abilities, creativity, and communication skills of law librarians as they work with administrations to plan new or remodeled spaces and map the complex steps of relocation. Viewing these experiences through our colleagues’ eyes can inform and inspire us to make better use of the space in our own libraries."
