The University of Iowa Libraries

Preservation & Conservation Department

Binding Preparation

The department processes materials to and from our commercial binding service. Departmental libraries are responsible for collecting and collating serials in their collections and sending prepared volumes to preservation for commercial binding. Preservation staff are responsible for all serials maintenance tasks in Main. This includes shelving newly received issues, collecting issues when they accumulate in bindable numbers and the bibliographic updating of item records in the Libraries’ online database when issues are bound.

For questions about binding, please contact Deb Miller debbie-miller@uiowa.edu
