tie-binders Wendy Stewart 20 Feb 1998 17:41 UTC

I'm interested in finding out how many libraries use tie-binders (aka
multibinders) for their periodicals and other materials and the
reasons why.

It's been my experience that many people don't know what tie-binders
are, so if you're curious, read on.  Tie-binding requires drilling
holes in the left margin and attaching front and back boards by
inserting a cord through the holes.  We use them in place of pam

I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone concerning this.  I'd also
like to know your feelings about their effectiveness as a binding
