Description: From Library Journal
Habich, an administrative services officer, wrote this book as a result of planning and managing a move for Northeastern University Libraries?a move that brought together a main library, three branches, and a storage facility. In the first section, she details planning for collection space in the new location, with exhaustive details on determining linear measurements of the collection as a whole and its nonhomogeneous parts. Information on planning for growth is also included. Habich considers the collection move from four angles: hiring a moving company (or two?one for materials, the other for furniture) with a consultant, hiring a moving company with staff supervisor, moving using staff only, and moving with staff and volunteers. No matter which of the four options are chosen, Habich outlines the step-by-step procedures for each move. She also discusses other topics such as moving costs, disruption of service, handling special collections, and pest management and cleaning of the collection (both being done before the move). Helpful charts on the average width of library materials and an annotated bibliography are included. Used in conjunction with Ruth Fraley's Library Space Planning (Neal-Schuman, 1990. 2d ed.), Habich's handbook is recommended for medium-sized and large libraries.?Marie Bruni, Huntington Memorial Lib., Oneonta, NY
