In the June issue, Gerald D. Gibson was said to be now at the Sibley Music Library, but this is wrong. He has been for several years at the Library of Congress's Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division.
In the "People' section of the June issue, Mirjam Foot is described as 'assistant keeper in charge of conservation and bookbindings." in fact Ms. Foot is curator responsible for historical bookbindings and for conservation and binding preparation. The person in charge of conservation is Mike Western, Manager of Conservation and Binding.
Both individual and institutional subscriptions will go up by $5.00 October 1 for 1987, after two years at the same level. Rates for 1986 and for back issues will remain the same.
The Abbey Newsletter: Bookbinding and Conservation is issued six or more times a year and has about 1000 subscribers. (Volume 9 had seven issues.) New subscribers automatically receive all issues published in the current year, unless they request otherwise. All subscriptions expire on the last day of the year.

The telephone number is 801/ 378-2512 during the day and 801/373-1598 evenings and weekends. Note: the Newsletter is not part of the University or the Library.
No paid advertisements are accepted, but any notice that is appropriate and has news value will be printed if there is room for it. Written contributions and bits of news are welcome. Claims for issues which are defective or damaged in the mail, and for hack issues paid for but never received, will be honored without question within a year of publication.
The Abbey Newsletter is indexed in Art and Archaeology Technical Abstracts, Institute of Paper Chemistry Abstract Bulletin and RIT's Graphic Arts Literature Abstracts. It is not indexed in the usual periodical indexes because it is called a newsletter.
The Editor encourages readers to copy and pass around any article from the Newsletter, even entire issues; but before copying any part on a scale that amounts to republication, they must obtain permission from both author and editor. All back issues except v.1 #2 are in print and available.
