Hello Sylvia,

We bind with a cheaper sort of binding (soft instead of hard binding), and
on the spine we write the exact holdings (as far as possible). For example:

I hope this helps.

Good afternoon!
I am trying to find out how other libraries handle binding incomplete
serial volumes where 1 or 2 issues are missing.  Do you bind them or
not?  Also, what do you place on the spines of those bound volumes,
e.g.,  Incomplete, Lacks v. 51 n. 1?  Any information you could share
with me would be most appreciated.  Thank you in advance and have a
great day!
