Purpose and objectives of binding - library management, Other Management

Purpose and Objectives of Binding :

Unlike private collection, books in libraries are to be used by successive groups-be it a public library or an academic library-and hence need greater care in handling and preservation. Library collection is no more limited to books printed on paper. It now includes non-book materials - films, magnetic tapes, discs, etc.

However since the books still constitute the bulk of library collection, binding routines needs our special attention. A tabular record for books withdrawn/weeded as per illustration may be maintained. 

In all such cases approval of the relevant  parent  body also must be taken before effective withdrawal/weeding. 

Books are consumable commodities. They are to  be preserved for posterity. The paper which constitute that book is delicate and subject to wear and tear. There must be some covering material so that it can be saved from its various enemies such as insects, dampness, dirt, heat, cold, etc. 

The  main objective of binding is to  build strength into a book, subjected to the rigorous and abuses of library usage. Binding ensures the preservation of written, printed or near print material. The objectives of library binding are: 

1) to enhance the life span of library materials by insulating against wear and tear.  

2) to improve the  durable quality of library materials i.e.; maintaining them in good shape while being used, and 

3) to improve their aesthetic qualities by creating a new book and thereby attracting readers to them.
