Instructor: Susan Hansen
Date: August 14-17, 2002

This four-day hands-on workshop is intended for library staff who repair
damaged volumes from circulating collections. The course is based on
instructions from the Book Repair Procedure Manual prepared by the
University of Iowa Libraries' Conservation Department.

In order to be effective, collections maintenance repair must be quick,
simple, and inexpensive, without sacrificing good workmanship and
materials. The course will focus on the repair of cloth bound trade and
publishers bindings and will provide hands-on experience.

Topics will include:
1. Orientation to the scope of book collections
maintenance techniques and methods of selection and
processing of items for repair;
2. Equipment, ergonomics, and safety in the book repair
3. Relevant techniques from bindery practice, including
double fan adhesive binding and replacement paper
copy production;
4. Relevant preservation techniques,
including protective enclosures, paper mending,
and the reinforcement of paper covers;
5. Productivity of the book repair facility.
Participants are encouraged to bring examples of specific problems for
discussion and workshop sessions.
