About the Event
The Library Preservation Round Table presents an OLA Pre-Conference Workshop:
If you have experience mending books; if you perform book repair operations in your library or train other menders, and are interested in building your skills, this pre-conference class is for you. This workshop will offer an opportunity to practice techniques covered in "Basic Book Repair" (page reattachment, hinge and spine repairs) and will introduce some more challenging procedures, such as re-casing and paper repair.
Participants are asked to bring books from their own libraries to work on, particularly at least one thorny problem that has been sitting on your desk waiting for TLC. Since each person will have their own repair jobs with potentially different needs to address, we'll have the opportunity to pool our knowledge and solve problems together as we work. There will also be books available for you to practice on. Please bring your own basic tools (ruler, x-acto knife, brush, bone folder, scissors) and we'll provide the paper, cloth, adhesives, and cutting surfaces. Most of all, bring your questions and your skills!
