Library binding is a specialized form of book binding designed to produce books that will hold up to rigorous use. Bindings are designed to significantly extend the shelf life of printed material. Generally, no two books sent to the bindery are the same. Each book received must be evaluated and decisions made as to the most effective and efficient methods to apply in order to produce a high quality, attractive binding. There are over 100 different productions processes that may be applied to any given book. The average volume sent for binding will go through 35 distinct production processes before being returned to the library.
