Guidelines - Binding

Because of budget constraints, routine binding has been suspended.

Current limited binding is determined on a per-case basis.

policy updated 04/19/2010 - KWM


Policy superceded:

The Periodicals Department [sic] processes the books which are sent to the bindery and maintains the necessary files.

The Acquisitions Department staff, however, is alert to the need for binding certain types of newly-received material: non-reference looseleaf material; oversize, heavy, or thick paperbacks; and material for which the request card specifies binding.

All unbound material for the Music Library or Special Collections is screened by a staff member of the respective department to decide on binding. As funds permit, the Acquisitions Department provides binders for publications that are too flimsy to stand alone on the shelf.
