The Basic Book Workshop offers two days of hands-on training. Participants gain knowledge of how a book is constructed and will learn appropriate repair techniques for book and paper repair. Sources for supplies and how to create a book repair area will be discussed. Students will learn skills for mending a torn page, repairing worn hinges, gluing in loose pages, replacing a damaged spine, replacing endpapers, and sewing a pamphlet into binders. This training is for staff and supervisors who repair books in the general and circulating collections. (We will not cover repairs for items that are rare, in Special Collections, or are very fragile.) People who are currently repairing books may learn new techniques. Participants will receive a kit to take back to their library!

Academic Library staff will be interested in this workshop because they will learn how to repair common damage to books in the general collection. These repair techniques extend the life of books that are out of print and needed for faculty and students.

Public Library staff will be interested in this workshop because they will increase their skills in repairing high use books to keep them available for circulation. We will emphasize repairing books when damage first occurs to avoid future repairs.

School Librarians and Media Specialists will be interested in this workshop because they will develop skills to repair popular books with lots of wear. We will discuss proactively protecting books by adding protective covers prior to circulation.

Special Librarians will be interested in this workshop because they will learn how to protect fragile documents by use of pamphlet bindings and mylar sleeves. The workshop is geared toward repair of general collection books, not rare items.
