In response to Noel Carmack's request for "an effective, inexpensive,
'archival' label protector that will work well" I pass along UC San
Diego's approach.  For over 20 years we have been applying a glue wash
over call number labels.  We have found it to be highly effective, very
cheap material wise (Brodart Bind-Art transparent liquid plastic
adhesive), and workable on all types of covers.  The glue is brushed on
in assembly line fashion, extending past the edges of the label.  It
dries transparent in 15-20 minutes  The procedure is being done in both
the Catalog Dept and the Preservation/Bindery Unit by student employees.
The staff time involved is not much more than applying a label protector
carefully.  We tried label protectors the last couple of years in the
Catalog Dept, but have gone back to gluing as a more permanent and
effective method for label protection.
