Thank you, ma'am!  Many have mentioned this guide, as well as some NTIS publications and a planning
guide from MLA.  I will have to compile a summary of the suggestions for future reference.

Greetings!  A former Army librarian, now at Eglin AFB, asked me about Army and/or
Federal space planning criteria for Federal Hospitals.  Since I cannot think of any
source of such standards at the moment, I thought I'd ask the rest of you for references,
as this topic has probably been discussed before.  I'm sure I will need this information
myself before too long as well.
(I will query the Army librarians separately.)

have for them.  The library design guide references the pub

but I can't locate it (or even a source for it) anywhere.  Any
