Keep your collection looking healthy and in good circulating condition--join us for this one-day workshop demonstrating the basics of these money-saving techniques. This session is designed for general, circulating collections in public and small academic libraries. The approach will be to teach methods for repairing books with less damaging techniques, as a building block toward “archival quality” or “preservation oriented” collection maintenance. Attendees will learn about the structure of a book, what books should be sent to the bindery and what books can be repaired at the library.
This workshop is hands-on, allowing participants practice time for techniques such as repairing torn pages, tipping-in loose pages, hinge tightening, reattaching broken hinges and simple spine repairs. Each attendee will receive a supply kit and a list of supplies to take back to the library.
Please note: The registration fees for this workshop include a $60 charge for the repair supply kit provided to each participant.
Registration closes on APRIL 3rd--secure your spot early! The book repair workshops are making their final appearance on our training calendar this year. Our long-time workshop leader, Dr. Miriam Kahn, is taking a break for the foreseable future.
