How does a library handle a book without a spine, like "Return of the Elephant"? Is is just put out on the bookshelf between the spined books?

Dave Carter said...

That depends. We will either staple bind it, or put it in special collections. Return of the Elephant will probably get staple bound.

Cool. How does your library's collection relate to Phoebe Gloeckner's involvement with the University? I was under the impression that she was putting together a collection as well?

Dave Carter said...

We are purchasing and housing the collection. Phoebe was instrumental in getting the collection started, and has been publicizing and soliciting donations and recommending books for purchase.
