STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS -PHYSICAL PLANNING OF LIBRARY-LIBRARY MANAGEMENT 

In the field of library work, most of the standards or specifications that have evolved over the years are more in the nature of "accepted practice". The national standardising agencies in many countries have thought it appropriate to formulate systematically these accepted practices and bring them out as national standards. In India, the Indian Standards Institution (renamed as Bureau of Indian Standards) has brought out standards as listed in Appendex 1. These standards provide the necessary guidance to the librarian in choosing the right design with functional efficiency. The Natiional Institute of Designs, Ahmedabad, has  also done considerable work in designing functional library furniture. More discussion about standards for library building, furniture, equipment, lighting, etc. can be found in the books cited at the end.
