address preservation principles, treatment decision-making, and
organizing and equipping a repair unit. Included with the
registration fee is a book repair kit containing a variety of tools,
samples of paper, cloth and adhesives provided by support from the
National Endowment for the Humanities. This is a prerequisite for
