New Directions in Library Binding
November 14-16, 1996
Boston, Massachusetts at the
Sheraton Commander Hotel, Cambridge

Increasing numbers of librarians are beginning to recognize that the
careful, appropriate binding and rebinding of books and serials are
key elements in preserving their collections. As the profession
faces the accelerating deterioration of acidic paper, the damaging
effects of photocopying, and the declining quality of many
publishers' bindings, it becomes clear that library bindings must be
not only strong, but also flexible. The current edition of the
Library Binding Institute Standard for Library Binding outlines many
options, and library staff must be knowledgeable in order to apply
them correctly. The binding standard is now being revised by LBI in
conjunction with the National Information Standards Organization
(NISO), and further changes may be required in library binding

Audience: 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.
