Physical Processing

Library materials in all formats - books, periodicals, videos, microfilms, sound recordings, CD- ROMs, etc. - have to be physically processed before they are "shelf-ready." Depending on the type of material, this may entail adding spine labels, date due slips, circulation cards and pockets, bar codes and security strips, ownership markings, protective cases and covers and/or reinforcements. Physical processing makes materials ready for circulation and prolongs their shelf life.

The FEDLINK books vendors may provide physical processing for the publications you purchase through them. The table below summarizes the vendors' offerings. The prices may vary between vendors and within a vendor's own offering for several reasons:

·         There are different "standard" packages available.

·         There are different processing options available within the basic categories (e.g., simply providing spine labels or actually affixing them to the item).

·         There are different quality materials to choose from (e.g., mylar coverups of different thickness).

·         There are some volume discounts for large orders.


Please contact your vendor for detailed information.
