ABSTRACT
The emphasis in the burgeoning and sometimes outstanding new library buildings and major rebuilds in Australia and New Zealand is on building social and educational capital. This is being achieved through attention to distinctive spaces for user groups, retailing approaches to ambience, interior design, furniture, lighting, signage, pervasive ICT and eating and drinking facilities. There is an increasing number of new joint use libraries between public and educational libraries, which have special design needs. The user response to, and professional satisfaction with, many of the new buildings reflects the growth in consultation with stakeholders. It also reflects architects and consultants with library experience who are responsive to the aspirations of librarians for attractive, flexible and efficient library buildings. Revision of a paper presented at the Library buildings conference Bournemouth UK 5-6 February 2004.
