- The librarian plays an important role in the design and construction of a new facility. Frequently, if the organization is large and the project complex, the committee serves to represent entire staff, as well as members of the public, student body, faculty, or other constituents. City or institutional employees including architects and project managers from facilities departments typically work with the committee, bringing their expertise and representing the parent institution. Once construction begins, the project team forms to meet weekly. This team provides ongoing communication and makes potential changes to the site design. Usually a representative from the library, an institutional facilities staff member, a representative from the architectural firm, and the construction project manager meet weekly to discuss the progress of the project.
