New technology and aging buildings are making library facility management more complex and difficult than ever before. Many librarians have inherited buildings that not only need to be retrofitted for today's technology, but also require repair and replacement of basic systems. The handbook was written by a Director and a professional facilities manager to provide the practical advice, techniques, and solutions library managers need to ensure that their facilities can function for their intended purposes. Chapters cover planning and evaluating, security and safety, lighting, climate control, parking, access, costs and finances, preventive maintenance and repairs, record-keeping, contracts, bidding, specifications, and much more. An extensive glossary of terms provides the language needed to communicate with facilities staff and contractors. Every library manger will want to use this unique handbook to ensure that the environment of their library seamlessly supports each aspect of its mission.

This book was written specifically for boiler plant operators and supervisors who want to learn how to lower plant operating costs, as well as how to operate plants of all types and sizes more wisely. This newly revised edition provides guidelines for HRSGs, combined cycle systems, and environmental effects of boiler operation. Also included is a new chapter on refrigeration systems which addresses the environmental effects of inadvertent and intentional discharges of refrigerants. Going beyond the basics of "keeping the pressure up," the author explains in clear terms how to set effective priorities to assure optimum plant operation, including safety, continuity of operation, damage prevention, managing environmental impact, training replacement plant operators, logging and preserving historical data, and operating the plant economically.

This reference covers the full scope of energy management techniques and applications for new and existing buildings, with emphasis on the "systems" approach to energy management. Building structural considerations are examined, such as heat loss and gain, windows, and insulation. A thorough discussion of heating and cooling system optimization strategies is provided. Also covered are energy conservation measures for lighting systems, water systems and electrical systems. Specific energy management applications are discussed in detail, including solar energy systems, energy management systems, and alternative energy technologies.

While energy efficiency projects could partly meet new energy demand more cheaply than new supplies, weak economic institutions in developing and transitional economies impede developing and financing energy efficiency retrofits. This book analyzes these difficulties, suggests a 3-part model for projectizing and financing energy efficiency retrofits, and presents thirteen case studies to illustrate the issues and principles involved.
