This presentation familiarizes viewers with different aspects of circulating collections book repair for school, public, and academic library staff. It shows basic descriptions of techniques using images, and video. This presentation should not be construed as a how-to, hands-on workshop. Likewise, it is not aimed at the treatment of special collections items. Selected resources for training, both hands-on and online are provided at the end.
