When an item (monograph or serial) circulates from Offsite it should be examined to see if it needs first-time binding, repair, rebinding, reformatting, or replacement according to the same criteria used for materials shelved on campus. This includes items housed in Tyvek envelopes.
If the item is in extremely poor condition it should be routed for preservation immediately, and the patron should be encouraged to use Borrow Direct or ILL to locate a different copy. Otherwise, the item should be routed to Preservation after return.
Follow guidelines in DCMM-904: Routing Offsite Volumes for Binding, Repair, Rebinding, Replacement, Microfilming, or Photocopy.
As of January 1, 2004, all paperback monographs (except Milstein items and U.S. Government documents with location off,docs) are sent for binding after patron return. If a U.S. Government document is damaged and needs to be bound, send to MPS with a note.
