Records are reviewed to identify materials to be bound. Pull slips are generated using the Innopac binding module. Complete volumes are removed from the current periodical shelves, processed and placed in bindery preparation status until the time that the bindery shipment is packed to leave the building.
Materials are in transit or at the Bindery for 4 weeks. Materials returning from the Bindery are usually unpacked, processed, and sent to the Circulation Department to be shelved within 1 week.
Materials cannot be retrieved once they are packed in boxes to go to the Bindery. However, materials can be retrieved for use before being packed as long as they are returned to the Serials Department by the morning of the shipment.
