Re: binding journals with fold-out charts Ian Bogus 06 Nov 2003 18:31 UTC

Here at Rutgers we have a no trim policy on all our material.  Since we
don't trim the foredges we don't run the risk of cutting any folded
material.  It could be possible to ask for that volume to have "no
trim".  Another option is to fold the chart so that the fold is not near
the edge, and when it comes back from the bindery put it back to its
original state.
