New Directions in Library Binding Institute
September 30-October 1, 1994
Normandy Inn, Minneapolis, Minnesota

This institute is designed to train library staff in the administrative
and operational functions of a library binding program. Supervisors of
serials, technical services, binding and preservation units will find
the curriculum most useful.

Goals and Objectives
Through a detailed understanding of changes in the processes and
materials used by library binders, participants will learn to administer,
evaluate and improve their operations to provide an effective,
preservation-conscious binding program.

Using plenary sessions and small group practicums, the institute will:

-- assess binding methods available under the LBI Standard for Library
Binding (8th ed.)

-- offer hands-on instruction for implementing a process for choosing
binding methods

-- provide guidelines for establishing library specifications for
specific binding tasks

-- provide guidelines for identifying volumes that should not or cannot
be bound and outline alternative ways of preserving them

-- offer recommendations for reorienting and upgrading the library
binding program

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Normandy Inn, the site of the
institute, at a special conference rate of $75.00 for a single or double
room until September 8. Call the hotel directly for your reservation,
mentioning the Institute on Library Binding. The phone number is
