Binding incomplete volumes inhouse Lori Hughes 27 May 2004 17:40 UTC

We are currently conducting a cost analysis for binding incomplete
volumes in-house verses sending them to commercial bindery. If your
library binds incomplete periodical volumes in-house, what binding
system/equipment are you using? If you are sending them to commercial
bindery, how long have you been doing so and is it working out well?  If
we continue in-house binding, we will need to replace our Togic machine
soon and we are considering sending all volumes (complete or not) to
commercial bindery instead. Any advice and/or insight is appreciated.
