Title Book repair program at Brigham Young University: an institutional profile
Date 1992
Description Brigham Young University's (BYU) Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL), situated in the arid Intermountain West, is a research library containing slightly more than three million volumes. The library consists of a main library, as well as separate business, museum, and learning resource center libraries. The Law Library is a separate organizational entity. All repair work is handled by the HBLL's Book Repair Unit. Located in the main library, the Book Repair Unit is an organizational component of the Preservation Department within the HBLL's Technical Services Division and reports directly to the Preservation Librarian. The HBLL also has a Conservation Lab responsible for the treatment of its special collections material. While separated physically within the main library from the Book Repair Unit, the lab collaborates with the Book Repair Unit as needed to help establish and improve treatment standards, order specific supplies, and provide advanced training.
