BINDING PAPERBACKS

Paperbacks can be bound in two ways:
   
LBI STANDARD BUCKRAM LIBRARY BINDING:  NISO/LBI Standard  
 
KATER-BOUND: The original paperback cover is color photocopied, laminated with Mylar and this is used with binders board to make a hardbound book. The pages are double fan adhesive bound or  side sewn.

 

ONLY STANDARD FORMAT PAPERBACKS ARE SUITABLE FOR KATER-BINDING.
 
LIMITATIONS ON KATER-BOUND  BOOKS:

These are inexpensive binding processes designed for mass market paperbacks and we can only assume a maximum replacement value of $50.00 per book. For either process, the pages must be in good condition with no dog ears or tears.

For KATER-BINDS  the covers must be in good condition. If a cover is damaged, too stiff or cannot be removed from the book without damage, the book will have to be returned or Library bound per the customers request.

You may put a label with call numbers or a barcode on the spine or front cover of a paperback to be KATER-BOUND and it will be protected by the Mylar lamination.
