Library Binding Toolkit Now Available

The ALA-PARS Library Binding Discussion Group [now the Book and Paper Interest Group] has been working over the past couple of years to create a Library Binding Toolkit to help small and mid-sized institutions identify and prioritize materials for commercial binding. From today’s announcement:

The work done by the taskforce has yielded a resource that will assist small to mid-sized libraries in recognizing and prioritizing library material for binding. Yes, budgets are small(er) but there is an interest from our target audience for this type of information and the person making the decisions for binding or general preservation may be at a library that does not have a preservation program or staff have no preservation training. To order the Toolkit, contact Debra S. Nolan, CAE, at dnolan@lbibinders.org, or 561-745-6821.

A secondary function of the toolkit is to serve as an educational workbook to be used in regional workshops across the country. These workshops are designed to orient small and mid-sized library staff with Preservation Officers in their region to create resource networks.
The first of which is to be held in Arcadia, CA on May 14th 2010 (Preservation Week!). If you are interested in attending, contact Julie Page
