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 .
