Subject: Library binding quality control

Library binding quality control

From: Elaine Bond <bond>
Date: Friday, January 25, 1991
I would like to know:

1)  what do various libraries do to check the quality of the binding
they are getting from their commercial binders:  what quality control
checks are you going?  Who does them?  Is each book checked?  Only a
percentage of the order?  What do you look for?

2)  What do you find the error rate is over the year after checking the
commercial binding?  What percentage of the books sent are sent back to
be redone?  What percentage of the books sent do you think are not
acceptable?  I'd be grateful for any information.  Thanks.
