Using Historic Buildings to House New Libraries: Prerequisites and Conditions for Successful Revival
This chapter discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the rehabilitation of historic buildings for library use. The architectural characteristics of different types of historic buildings are examined to ascertain which are the most suitable for new use as a library. A work methodology is also proposed to help assess the suitability of housing new libraries in historic buildings, diagnosing the conservation status and precisely determining the actions to be followed. Finally, the factors that should come together before accepting the proposal to create a library in a historic building are listed. Examples provided are taken from projects in Spain.
