Re: Charging for Binding -- Lucy Duhon Lucy Duhon 08 Jan 2001 14:53 UTC

We don't.  We only charge the actual cost of the binding back to the
department.  (I'm referring to binding theses and dissertations).  If a
department wanted to have a huge one-time collection bound, then
charging them for time or labor might be something to consider.

Interesting thought.

Do any of you charge academic departments for binding materials from
their departmental collections?  I'm referring to charging for your time
and labor in preparing the materials to be sent to your commercial
vendor, not the actual cost of binding that the vendor charges.
