Binding & Shelf Processing (BSP)


Binding & Shelf Processing (formerly Materials Processing) carries out shelf processing of materials new to the collections, including call number labeling, ownership stamping, and inserting security devices and bookplates. It handles preparation for first-time commercial binding of serials and paperbacks, commercial rebinding of damaged volumes, mylar binding of paperback items, and creation by the commercial bindery of custom preservation enclosures. Binding & Shelf Processing is also responsible for tracking binding invoices, implementing the binding contracts, and quality control of all bound materials. Binding & Shelf Processing also processes and routes new items for ReCap.
