Aaron Cohen Associates LTD writes periodically on our Library Consultant Blog. It is a way for us to share our knowledge, links and ideas. It is an opportunity to participate in social media and track our own research. Please feel free to visit our blog to read more about our latest thinking.

Over the years, we developed articles that focused on space planning and library design. We continue researching library design, user behavior, library science, knowledge management, and organizational development. We post this information on our Blog and link our research through our Library Consultant Twitter Feed
