Not much of a suggestion, but one of our technicians mentioned
Handi-binding, a method we sometimes use here, rather against all our
better judgements.  This is essentially a drill that drives a hole-punch
sized hole through a stack of newsletters (e.g.) and then drives a
polyethylene(?) rod through the hole and through pre-made (commercially)
pam-binders.  Opening is of course miserable, but it is at least
non-adhesive and reversible, sort of. The volume is easily taken apart,
but the holes remain. Requires a substantial margin, but many
newsletters seem to have adequate margins for it.  Obviously not for
materials of permanent value. w
