The Bindery located at the Sidney Martin Library was established in 1978  to provide binding and repair services to the library and the campus. Located on the ground floor near the library’s main entrance, the Bindery maintains the library’s print resources in good condition. It is equipped with a wide range of specialized tools, equipment and binding materials which allow for a range of services to be offered. Staffed by two persons, the binding services include:

Repairs can be done to hard and soft covered books.  Theses, research reports and project documents can be professionally bound. Archival boxes for the storage of fragile and rare material can be constructed and gold lettering provided for special items.

Comb binding and lamination.
