Title:Library Binding

Abstract:In analyzing and evaluating binding methods today, as well as projecting and forcasting for the future, let us first focus our attention on some of the significant changes and developments taking place in the industry. Within the last decade, mechanization and technological advancements have made impressive gains in updating library binding. All indications are that this is just the beginning, and that we are moving into an era of accelerated automation and development. Prior to this time, of course, steady progress was realized in binding technology, but it was in far more moderate degrees than what is being experienced now. The sewing machine formerly constituted one of the main mechanized functions, and could probably be considered the most sophisticated operation in the over-all binding process. Other essential but less complex machinery consisted of stamping and type setting equipment, cutting machines, semi-automatic rounding and backing equipment and book presses. These devices usually encompassed the full spectrum in a modern library binding operation.
