From: Lisa Fox <lfox>
Date: Monday, August 1, 1994
"New Directions in Library Binding" Institute
September 30-October 1, 1994
Normandy Inn, Minneapolis, Minnesota

This institute is designed to train library staff in the administrative
and operational functions of a library binding program. Supervisors of
serials, technical services, binding and preservation units will find
the curriculum most useful.

Goals and Objectives

    Through a detailed understanding of changes in the processes and
    materials used by library binders, participants will learn to
    administer, evaluate and improve their operations to provide an
    effective, preservation-conscious binding program.

Using plenary sessions and small group practicums, the institute will:

    *   assess binding methods available under the LBI Standard for
        Library Binding (8th ed.)

    *   offer hands-on instruction for implementing a process for
        choosing binding methods

    *   provide guidelines for establishing library specifications for
        specific binding tasks

    *   provide guidelines for identifying volumes that should not or
        cannot be bound and outline alternative ways of preserving them

    *   offer recommendations for reorienting and upgrading the library
        binding program


    A block of rooms has been reserved at the Normandy Inn, the site of
    the institute, at a special conference rate of $75.00 for a single
    or double room until September 8. Call the hotel directly for your
    reservation, mentioning the ALA/ALCTS Institute on Library Binding.
