Staff Activity Area of library building -library management

Main activities carried out by the professional staff of the library are: Acquisition, Technical Processing (cataloguing and classification) and Reference service. Besides,a lot of routine activities like typing, labelling, stamping, duplicating are carried out in areas screened off from public view. The space allocation for professionals and other staff should take into consideration the fact that besides tables and chairs, they would require space  for book racks, trolleys, card trays etc. General norm  is to provide about 250 sq.ft. areas for librarian, 125-150 sq.ft. for deputy librarian and 50 sq.ft. for clerical staff. The number of staff obviously depends on the size of the library and the range of services provided. The staff areas are organised around discrete work units, and their layout should be such that work flows smoothly from one work unit to the other.
