More on Damaged Books

by @ 9:22 am. Filed under Registry Ops

The damaged record books addressed by Register Howe in yesterday’s blog entry date back to the early 1900’s…
Their place in history give these rare, old books intrinsic value. Every time I look at the book damage or show it to someone else I cringe. Unfortunately, it is true… but sometimes it takes an accident to learn a valuable lesson. Since the discovery we have covered the tops of all bookcases in the basement with plastic. We know this is only a temporary solution, but it will hold us until we come up with something better. We are exploring a means to create a triangle shaped cover over the books that extends out like a shed. While we are waiting for the books to be repaired they have been put in storage. If you need a copyfrom these books, the images are available on the Internet or come to Customer Service.
