This timely special report from ALA Editions provides a succinct but comprehensive overview of the "privatization" of public libraries. It provides a history of the trend of local and state governments privatizing public services and assets, and then examines the history of public library privatization right up to the California legislation introduced earlier this year to restrict cities in the state from privatizing library services. The book also examines what happens when a private, for-profit organization takes over essential management tasks and decisions of a public library, including the effects this can have on services, patron satisfaction and staff, as well as legal issues. It provides in-depth recommendations for librarians who want to retain control of their own institutions. Complete with case studies, statistics, and a valuable checklist of to-dos for libraries that are facing partial or complete privatization.

Over one hundred presentations from the 36th annual Charleston Library Conference (held November 1-5, 2016) are included in this annual proceedings volume. Major themes of the meeting included data visualization, streaming video, analysis and assessment, demand-driven acquisition, and open access publishing. While the Charleston meeting remains a core one for acquisitions librarians in dialog with publishers and vendors, the breadth of coverage of this volume reflects the fact that this conference is now one of the major venues for leaders in the publishing and library communities to shape strategy and prepare for the future. Almost 2,000 delegates attended the 2016 meeting, ranging from the staff of small public library systems to the CEOs of major corporations. This fully indexed, copyedited volume provides a rich source for the latest evidence-based research and lessons from practice in a range of information science fields. Contributors comprise leaders in the library, publishing, and vendor communities.

Now that fewer new libraries are being built it is particularly important to maximize space in the buildings available, and to ensure that library plans are determined by the needs of the users. Often the interior of a building will be redesigned, and the librarian can influence the architect's plans. Planning and Designing Libraries for Children and Young People introduces the concept of space as a resource available to the library manager - along with stock, staff and finance - and it will need managing in exactly the same way as any other resource. This publication will enable school and children's librarians to develop a critical and evaluative attitude to the utilization, layout, appearance and environment of their libraries. Dealing both with the needs of the children's and teenage sections of the public library and with the needs of the school library, the book takes the reader through the different stages in the creation of a library space resource, and includes a consideration of the location of the library; the range of accommodation; standards and guidelines; policy, committees and teams; spatial relationships and the library layout; and furniture and equipment. Illustrated with library plans and photographs, and full of practical advice supported by case studies, this book will be an indispensable aid to school and children's librarians, as well as managers of library space, who wish to create a positive environment for children and young people in school and public libraries. It will also be invaluable to practising architects and to those responsible for running courses in layout and design.
