adhesives, the dynamics of adhesive binding structures, and

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).
