Abstract : In this study indoor soundscaping approaches were used to evaluate 3 different libraries in Sheffield, United Kingdom. Acoustic measurement and recordings as well as social survey on indoor soundscapes were carried out in each library. Usage, time spent, evaluation of physical conditions, demographics, sound perception, noise annoyance, and sound preferences were included in the survey. In addition, established frameworks were used for examining the architectural characteristics. The recorded sound files were analysed through ArtemiS software to examine parameters including sound pressure level, frequency spectrum, loudness, roughness, and sharpness. The survey data were evaluated in terms of the correlations between objective parametric results and subjective ratings. Relationships have been revealed between architectural/functional differences and the variances of objective measurements within the indoor sound environment.
