Newspaper and Journal Binding Services

This unique service offers libraries the complete bound version of periodicals (after the last issue of a given year is published). It is particularly useful for online subscribers where a paper copy is also desired. Patrons can have online access to publications during the year, while libraries have the complete bound version in paper at year’s end to ensure preservation. Prices depend on periodicity, please inquire for details.

Binding services includes application of title as the library wishes it presented, issues and call numbers on the spine, choice of numerous color and material options for the cover, as well as optional security strips.

Shelf-Ready Book Program

East View also offers a shelf-ready book program that allows libraries to get their materials to users faster while also reducing technical services costs. Our shelf-ready program includes the provision of full MARC records and in-house physical processing.

Our in-house physical processing services include:

  • Barcodes
  • Spine label(s) and protector
