The Accidental Facilities Manager
This webinar explores library building systems and issues for the accidental facilities manager.
Now more than ever, the care and feeding of library buildings, from historic to new, demands greater attention. With occupant health and safety in mind, common issues, such as cleaning, plumbing, or HVAC systems, take on new urgency. Many library directors and staff become facilities managers by default, with no formal training. This webinar offers a primer on building systems and issues, along with tools for preventive maintenance, energy assessments, optimizing ventilation and filtration, and more. Presenters share what they learned the hard way, in large and small libraries, so that you can be more prepared and self-assured.
Presented by: Lauren Stara, Library Building Specialist, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners; Andrea Bunker, Library Building Specialist, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners; and Lynn Piotrowicz, Director, Tucker Free Library (NH), and Co-author, Building Science 101: a Primer for Librarians (ALA Editions, 2010)
