Abstract/Summary Many library managers around the world are developing close working relationships with architects to ensure that the design of libraries meets client needs, functional requirements, and efficiency criteria, with attractive inspiring buildings providing a sense of community for various types of use and user. At the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia, a model of library service delivery was developed through an effective partnership of the then University Librarian and the Principal of a local architectural firm. Library design and refurbishment at the University of Queensland used innovative design principles, blending the perspectives of both the librarian and the architect in a unique partnership which was both personally rewarding and professionally successful.
Additional Notes Based on a paper 'The architect/librarian team – ensuring excellence in library design', presented at the Australian Library & Information Association 2004 Biennial Conference, Gold Coast, September 2004
