Intermediate Book Repair (formerly Advanced Book Repair) was
developed as a follow-up to Basic Book Repair and covers more
complex repairs to books and paper.

Participants should have completed Basic Book Repair before
enrolling in this course.  Techniques and topics covered include
complex paper repair, spine replacement, corner repair, enclosures,
sewing in loose signatures, re-casing a book in its original cover,
plus a review of decision-making, workflow, and how to set up a
repair unit. How to identify items requiring the expertise of a
conservator and how to make decisions for special collection items
are also discussed.
