Paperback book library

John Ison October 23, pm Reply. A flexible polypropylene self-adhesive cover would serve you well. Look over the charts in the above post. If your books are in a variety of sizes I suggest the CircExtender 2X in rolls 4 mil polypropylene. Go to Demco. com and search for Book Laminate Rolls.

If your books are all similar size you can order CircExtender pre-cut covers and save a bit of work. They are 2 mil polypropylene. Lisa December 8, am Reply. What do you recommend for paperback trade books with a powder coating surface? John Ison December 10, am Reply.

Lisa, I need a bit more information. Also, what type of material are you covering the books with? Dave January 29, pm Reply.

I am interested in changing the appearance of about new paperback bibles for our Church program. They are inexpensive, but the covers are not very attractive. They are 8. I am not sure how this would work on the binding, but in my head the rest seems like it would work.

Jennifer B. March 18, pm Reply. Quick question: How does Demco® CircExtender® Laminate compare to Demco Vistafoil gloss finish? We currently cover paperbacks with Vistafoil to protect them and extend their life.

John Ison March 23, pm Reply. I think you will find that the products are very similar in use. Both are available in vinyl and polypropylene but I avoid vinyl except for very short-term use.

The polypropylene version of each is available in 2. Both products are available in pre-cut versions to speed processing. Pre-cut polypropylene CircExtender is available in 2 mil thickness while Vistafoil polypropylene is 4 mil.

The best answer may be that if you are satisfied that whichever product you are using meets your needs stay with it. Stephanie April 12, pm Reply.

I absolutely love this book and want to protect it as much as possible. What product do you suggest would work best? Any help is greatly appreciated! John Ison August 3, am Reply. I think your best solution is to use some type of slip-on cover. Please scroll to my response to CJ which is immediately following this.

I see that Demco currently has a clearance on a slip-on that is 6. Since you need only one, maybe Customer Service could send it to you as a sample. Tell them the Book Doctor sent you. CJ McKague July 30, pm Reply. I see someone above asked a question similar to what I have. But they still top just as easily.

Your best option would be a slip-on type cover in which the covers slip into pockets to hold it on the book without adhesive.

Three options are available at Demco. com: Slip-On Book Covers Clear Choice Book Savers CoLibri Pouches. Stephen M May 2, pm Reply. How can I get rid of them and how can I prevent it during application? Leah Wright July 19, am Reply. I have covered my paperback books with laminate from Demco.

I there anything I can do about that? Theresa M Sabo September 4, pm Reply. Which demco laminate is least likely to have bubbles? No matter what method I try there are still bubbles. I am covering paperback books for an elementary school library so I need long lasting protection that will go on without bubbles.

Emelia Haglund September 5, am Reply. Thicker films tend to have fewer issues with bubbling. The thickest cover we offer is Demco® CircExtender® Rigid Cover IV, which is a 15 mil polyester. While these options should help minimize bubbling, they are an inevitable part of book covering.

It is possible to gently aspirate with a fine needle, then smooth down. A small dimple is still visible, but less unsightly than a bubble. Susan Weeks December 3, am Reply. We have paperback bibles that are stored in the pew rack on the back of the pew. How do we keep them from splaying open where they are taller than the holder.

We have tried turning them over each week which only makes the other end curl. Your Name. Your Email. Your Website. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. John Ison and Emelia Haglund. Protecting Softcover Books Softcover books — paperbacks — play a vital, though sometimes underappreciated, role in library service.

The film in protecting material sold by Demco ranges from 2 to 15 mils. vinyl : All of these are types of plastic film, but polyester is much stronger than polypropylene or vinyl. We recommend using vinyl only for materials you do not expect to retain for an extended period of time.

Repositionable adhesive: The adhesive in the covering material does not form a permanent bond for several hours after application. This is intended to allow the user to carefully lift the covering material, if necessary, and reapply it to eliminate creases or air bubbles. All CircExtender® products use repositionable adhesive.

Acid-free or pH neutral: Any acidic material in contact with paper will cause the paper to discolor and deteriorate. Any material used to protect softcover books should be acid-free and chemically stable. For more information on the pH of materials, refer to my Book Repair Supplies and Materials blog post.

All the products that Demco sells for protecting books are acid-free. How to Protect Softcover Books The products you select to protect specific softcover books will depend upon the value of the book, the amount of use you anticipate it will receive and how long you expect it to remain in your collection.

Tape Mass-market paperbacks are generally the lowest-cost books you will buy and you may wish to discard them after several circulations. Depress the platform and slide the book under the cutter lip with the spine facing right. The outriggers can be extended to support large books.

Line up the lower corner of the book's spine on the spine guide. Pull the tape out to the end of the book cover and line up the edge of the tape parallel with the spine. Press the tape down on the book and slide the cutter to trim the tape. Press the book down and slide it toward you.

Press the tape down onto the spine of the book. Slide the book across the applicator to adhere the tape to the opposite cover of the book. Laminates Demco offers a wide variety of laminates designed to meet different needs. Lay the open paperback on the Demco® Laminate and cut to size, leaving approximately 1" around the edges.

Remove the liner paper by peeling away at the split. Lay the laminate on a flat surface, adhesive side up. Center the spine of the book on the laminate. Roll the book first to one side of the laminate and then the other.

Smooth gently with a bone folder to eliminate air bubbles. Cut away the corners of the laminate at a 45º angle. Also slit the laminate at the corners of the spine at a 45º angle. Fold the overlapping laminate around the book edge or material and secure to inside of the covers. Trim off the remaining center tabs at the spine.

One- and Two-Piece Covers Choosing your preferred style of cover may involve a bit of trial and error, and you will likely find that some styles are best for some applications and other styles work better for different materials.

Semi-rigid Covers The 5 mil front and back covers provide outstanding protection for larger books while the material in the spine area is 2 mils thick to retain flexibility. CircExtender book covers. CircExtender Semi-rigid Covers. Disc Security Surveillance.

They are clear. I am hoping to find more of these to add to some of our older reference books, but I do not know what they are called. Any ideas? Liz Bowie March 3, pm Reply.

Hi, Melissa, I checked with John Ison, and he was unfamiliar with this product. However, our product manager will look into it, as it sounds like a neat idea! John also mentioned that clear plastic book wings can offer a lot of protection against torn head caps caused by pulling the books off the shelf.

Thanks so much for sharing this information! Carolyn March 22, am Reply. Liz Bowie March 29, pm Reply. Thanks for your interest! Lolo June 28, am Reply. I was grateful for the recommendation in the related hardcover post.

Thank you kindly! John Ison July 6, am Reply. These covers are 5-mil polyester for added support with 2-mil spines for flexibility. They are available for books up to 13 inches high and will fit a wide variety of thicknesses.

For the largest books which may need maximum support I recommend Demco CircExtender Rigid Cover IV as the mil polyester will keep them upright while shelved and protect them from bending during use. As with Semi-rigid covers these have a 2-mil spine to allow the book to open easily and are available for books up to 13 inches high.

You will find links to both of these products in the chart above. Thanks for your interest and please contact us again if you have further questions. Kim Rodriguez November 11, pm Reply. It was much easier for individual paperback owners when high quality covers were available in quantities of one or two, depending on their dimensions at stores like Barnes and Noble.

Can one only purchase them now in high quantities through library suppliers? Liz Bowie November 12, pm Reply. Hi, Kim, We do have some slip-on bookcovers that can be purchased individually to protect your books. I hope they meet your needs; thanks for reading!

Marlene Atkinson February 14, pm Reply. Put them in a vice for days? Any suggestions? They remain open. I need to flatten them. John Ison February 18, am Reply. Marlene, If you have already assembled the pamphlets you may be able to get them to lie flat by heating them along the spine to soften the laminate.

A hair dryer would probably work well for this. If you have already applied the laminate but not assembled the pamphlets try heating and folding the covers before you attach them. If you have not yet applied the laminate, assemble the pamphlets and apply the laminate with the covers closed.

In the future you can avoid this problem by using a product such as the CircExtender book covers mentioned in this blog and applying them according to the instructions. Penny Hinds February 21, am Reply.

John Ison March 11, pm Reply. Any one of several book covers detailed above can protect the cover and you can repair damaged pages when needed. Otherwise your best bet is to talk with the children about using their gentle hands to protect the book.

McKenna October 3, pm Reply. Liz Bowie October 7, pm Reply. Vinyl is not a good material to use for long-term preservation since it emits chemicals and odor until it finally dries out and falls apart.

The following comes from our blog post on protecting softcover books:. Polyester vs. polypropylene vs. vinyl: All are types of plastic film, but polyester is much stronger than polypropylene or vinyl. Only polyester and polypropylene are safe for archival materials.

Vinyl is not a stable material since chemicals will migrate into other materials as the vinyl becomes brittle. Although lower-cost covering products made from vinyl are available, I do not recommend their use on materials you hope to protect for an extended period of time.

Christopher October 16, pm Reply. I am trying to preserve my collection to the best of my ability and would like something that can keep my soft cover books as un damaged as possible.

Not enough to justify making people check two locations for everything. Hardbacks are generally taller, and thus require greater distance between the shelves.

I was reminded of it when some thoughts for my potential dissertation reminded me of some things Lewis says about space. We use softcover books as a browsing collection. It sits behind our Readers Advisory desk and contains the most popular titles.

We get lots of people who are looking for paperbacks specifically, either for travel or because they simply prefer them. It is also much more of an expendable collection since they are cheap can easily be replaced.

Keep in mind that arrangement of materials is one of the challenges that libraries face. Do we shelve cd with cassette audiobooks? Some people will only use one format, but it seems artificial to have authors divided by format. What about Large Print?

How visible should they be in a library? Preferably out in front so that people with disabilities can find them. However they are only used by a limited audience so that takes up valuable space. Have you been to the bookstores lately? Every bookstore I have been to has their books shelved in terms of paperbacks versus hardbacks.

They may mix some up, but overall, there tends to be a separation. I can certainly understand your desire to have everything in one place. In terms of libraries and I am an academic librarian , I think the space issue may be issue paperbacks take up less space, so you can put them on smaller shelves, or use those little racks that rotate for browsing.

On a different take, at home, for my own books I tend to separate between hardbacks and paperbacks. Again, it is a space issue.

Paperbacks I can put in small crates, on a side shelf, on any small nook. Hardbacks require an actual big shelf; putting a lot of paperbacks on a larger shelf would seem wasteful to me.

Anyhow, in the end, one goes with what works. Paperbacks are harder to shelve with Hardcovers. Often, a smaller book would be pushed back and fall behind the stack, lost forever. This often happens with graphic novels which is also why some libraries shelve these separately.

It is possible to get a backstop in some cases, but often the backstop makes the shelf itself too small for the hardcovers. Furthermore, many books go out of print are available ONLY in paperback. This is maddening. Lastly, paperbacks are often preferred by the senior population as it is easier to hold and lighter.

Having them in all one place like large print collections makes it easier for them. Some people prefer just paperbacks. Hope that helps. Are libraries really trying to serve the needs of the elderly when they separate? Having worked both in a bookstore and in a library, I can say that there are definitely people who want to browse them all together like you and those who want to browse paperbacks especially MM romance and sci-fi separately.

In the library where I worked, MM romance was shelved separately, and we were told not to bother ordering them too carefully because they were so thoroughly ransacked all the time.

For the record, this particular library had the same number of vertical shelves in the hardback section and the paperback section.

Fair: Many Thousand Gone: An American Fable paperback John A. A lot of people like that setup more, actually. They can find it more easy to browse, etc. But hey, everyone has their own opinion. Also… libraries can do this for the purposes of organization and money. Different shelving costs, more efficient storage, managing hardcovers and paperbacks is different, etc.

Paperbacks allow for closer categorization as well: you can have romance, mystery, etc. something you wished for in an earlier entry, heh. Hardcovers are then generally organized by the Dewey system, etc. So a bunch of reasons for you… maybe not your preference, but there you go.

Does having relatively the same size book make that much of a difference? And why would paperbacks allow for better categorization? Often the same books are available in both paperback and hardback.

Certainly some genres would lean toward paperback, but who cares if one section is heavy on paperback? Not enough to justify making people check two locations for everything.
