  This is a sore topic for me.  It feels like we've rebound almost our entire collection from the mid-90's because of the coated paper.  Increasingly many biomedical journals are appearing this way and with photocopying it doesn't take long before the pages separate from the glue and we have loose pages. And then when you rebind you end up with almost no margin.  We have a few titles that were rebound and it is almost impossible to read the inner edge but at least we still have all the pages.
  We now oversew as much as possible.
