Faculty Binding

The Binding Offices of the UGA Main and Science Libraries provide the service of sending bindable materials to The National Library Bindery Co. for faculty members and departments with account numbers.
Please follow instructions carefully.

The materials going to The National Library Bindery Co. should be grouped together in bindable units with elastic bands around them. A slip of paper attached to each group should specify the information that is to appear on the spine, including the cover color and color of the lettering. Colors are selected from samples available at the Binding Offices. All materials should be packed in closable boxes, and no more than twenty volumes should be brought to a Binding Office at one time.

A letter to The National Library Bindery Co. should accompany materials and list each item as it appears on each slip. The letter should be on department letterhead and give the name of the faculty member to be invoiced. An account number should be included if there is one. Please call Main Binding (2-0604) or Science Binding (2-6754) before dropping off or retrieving materials. Campus Mail will not pick up or deliver materials for binding.

Binding shipments are normally sent out every Tuesday and return three weeks later. If there are any questions or problems with the order, the Bindery should be contacted at 1-800-422-7908. When bound volumes are ready to be picked up from the Main or Science Binding Office, the faculty member will be notified by phone and can arrange a convenient time for retrieval. The Binding Offices will hold the bound materials for 30 days. After that time, the materials will be returned to The National Library Bindery Co. in Roswell and may be picked up there.
