Description:
 Participants must have completed the two-day Basic Book Repair class and bring the basic tools for book repair (provided in the Basic class) with them. Students should know how to repair and tip in damaged pages, repair a damaged spine, replace endpapers, and repair a damaged book cover. New techniques taught include reinforcing a damaged spine, repairing a damaged cover, sewing torn signatures, and re-casing a book.


Academic Library staff will learn new ways to keep damaged books available to library users. We build on techniques learned in the Basic Book Repair class. These techniques will extend the life of books that are damaged, out of print, or needed for faculty and students.
