Master book binder and noted author, Werner Rebsanen, to speak at
the Library Binding Discussion Group meeting, Sunday, June 26, 2005
during the ALA Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Please join us for another rousing discussion of library binding and
the issues surrounding libraries, users and binders.

We are delighted to host featured guest speaker, Werner Rebsamen, at
this meeting. Considered an authority in the field of book binding,
Rebsamen was born and educated as a master book binder in
Switzerland, and immigrated to the United States in 1960. After a
successful industry career, he joined the Rochester Institute of
Technology (RIT) in 1974 where he taught classes and industry
seminars on book manufacturing. In conjunction with the Library
Binding Institute (LBI), Rebsamen established a book testing
facility where bindings from all over the world are sent to be
tested and analyzed. His lectures and consulting assignments
continue to take him all over the world. Rebsamen currently serves
as Technical Services Director for LBI and is professor emeritus, at

Complimentary copies of the "Guide to the LBI Standard for Library
Binding" will be distributed to those who attend.

If there are any specific topics that you would like to see addressed
