I am not (yet) teaching a course on library architectural planning and design, 
but I have a professional degree in architecture and a PhD in library and 
information management and I wrote my dissertation on the professional discourse 
on academic library planning and design. 

My dissertation was entitled "(Re)Creating the Academic Library as Place for the 
21st Century? A  Critical Analysis of Discourses in  Discussions of Academic 
Library  Planning and Design." It should soon be available through UMI ProQuest 
and the results of my research are included in a chapter of a book to be 
published for IFLA. However, for those who can't wait, I will be happy to send a 
PDF file for personal use upon request .
