Editorial Reviews

?[The author] provides a history of facility siting, comprehensively reviews the scant research on public library location theory, and discusses a variety of models available to decision-makers. Koontz presents the effects of resiting and closing, as well as opening, libraries, and shows how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be useful in library market analysis.?-Library Journal
