well, including Avery Library at Columbia University, Ohio State
University, Morris Library at Carbondale, and Minneapolis Public
Library. The work is done in the bindery, using 50 lb. Glatfelter
book text paper and binding the copies to LBI standards. All books
are first disbound, and are later returned to the owners. Turnaround
time is 4-5 weeks, and prices are reasonable. An information sheet
and sample pages are available from Marc Flechsig, University
