The Library Preservation Round Table presents an OLA Pre-Conference 

"More" Book Repair for Libraries, Intermediate Level, on Wednesday, 
April 6, 2011
Salem Conference Center, Salem, OR

If you have experience mending books; if you perform book repair 
operations in your library or train other menders, and are interested in 
building your skills, this pre-conference class is for you.  This 
workshop will offer an opportunity to practice techniques covered in 
"Basic Book Repair" (page reattachment, hinge and spine repairs) and 
will introduce some more challenging procedures, such as re-casing and 
paper repair. 

Participants are asked to bring books from their own libraries to work 
on, particularly at least one thorny problem that has been sitting on 
your desk waiting for TLC.  Since each person will have their own repair 
jobs with potentially different needs to address, we'll have the 
opportunity to pool our knowledge and solve problems together as we 
work.  There will also be books available for you to practice on.  
Please bring your own basic tools (ruler, x-acto knife, brush, bone 
folder, scissors) and we'll provide the paper, cloth, adhesives, and 
cutting surfaces.  Most of all, bring your questions and your skills!

Your instructors will be: Carolee Harrison, Conservation Technician, and 
Kristen Kern, Fine and Performing Arts Librarian, from Portland State 
University Library.  Inquiries about the pre-conference workshop may be 
addressed to carolee at pdx.edu.

Space is limited and registration is now open via the OLA website.  For
