The binding  of these materials in a research library represents an important element of conservation. They should be carefully checked at intervals all through the year for completeness and due care should be taken to obtain  for every periodical its title page, contents and index from the publishers when available.  The checked sets  may then be  bound according to the use anticipated. The advent of their wear and tear is comparatively less.

It is not advisable  to bind permanent materials which are fragile, rare items, archives and newspapers. For their protection, they should be laminated.
