Stephen Langmead and Margaret Beckman. New Library Design: Guide lines to planning academic library buildings. (Toronto: J. Wiley and Sons), 1970 from Rare Book Collection, Archival & Special Collections, University of Guelph Library (s0341b11).

The book New Library Design, published two years after the completion of McLaughlin Library, was a collaboration of Stephen Langmead (the project architect for the Library design team) and Margaret Beckman (Chief Librarian for the University of Guelph Library). Featuring the new Library as a case study, the book outlined the rules for state-of-the-art design and furnishing of modern libraries.
