August 14, 9pm-1pm. Enrollment is limited to 6 people. Participants will
learn the theory and practice of adhesive binding for the hand binder and
in-house library repair units. Desk-top publishing, paperbacks, and the
photocopier highlight the need for simple but sound binding structures for
publications on separate sheets. Discussions and hands-on exercises will
include the selection of adhesives, the dynamics of adhesive binding
structures, and quarter-joint binding. Participants will make several
binding models illustrating structural variations.

        Pete Jermann, preservation officer for the Friedsam Library at St.
Bonaventure University, began researching adhesive binding techniques ten
years ago in order to develop efficient rebinding  structures for use in a
small in-house library binding and repair unit. He has published a study
on book structures in "New Library Scene" (August, 1994).
