Subject: Labelling


From: Becky Ryder <rjryde01>
Date: Tuesday, October 19, 1993
At the University of Kentucky, we plan to reclassify and relabel about
500,000 volumes in the next 2 years before moving into our new central
library.  Feature that a certain amount of pre-moving chaos will be the
backdrop for this project, so we are looking for efficient, swift but
permanent re-labelling operations.

We plan to contract out the label production process.  I would
appreciate any information that the list readers might offer about
labels vendors and about types of labels.  For instance:

    1.  What vendors have you used?  With what success?

    2.  What experience have you had with heat application (SE-LIN) vs.
        pressure sensitive labels?  [similar to Debra McKern's query of
        Oct. 1]

    3.  What overlays or clear protective shields have you used?
        Problems with oozing adhesives?

    4.  What preservation issues (first, do no harm) did you encounter
        when deciding about a type of label?  What costs?

   If you have information or insights, please respond to me.  Thanks.
