Finding Design Information

Finding information on designing spaces can be challenging, given the number of different people interested in the topic at both professional and scholarly levels. However here are some tips that can help.

Think about:

What kind of information do I need? Scholarly research, articles from trade or professional magazines, plans and blueprints, theory about design, building codes or regulations?

Who might be interested in this? Lots of people are interested in library spaces - architects and planners, educators, technologists, librarians, environmental psychologists, furniture companies, regulators and policymakers - and they all have their own literature and ways of communicating. Finding these can help you uncover valuable resources.

Where might they publish or store information? Scholarly literature can be found in databases, but lots of other kinds of information, especially professional or trade information, can be scattered in trade magazines, on websites, in association publications, and in other areas or can be expensive or hard to find.

How do they describe these spaces? The concepts of work space or open spaces where people can study or collaborate go by many names so think broadly about your keywords.
