Two great resources that are absolutely free...
These pamphlets are from Gaylord and they just happen to be free. Everyone interested in book and collections care should have these in their collections. http://www.gaylord.com/catalog.asp? You can find them at the bottom of the Gaylord catalog page.
They are available for download or you may order them all for free. One is called Bookcraft. Our helpful how-to guide will assist you in the maintenance and repair of your books. It clearly illustrates simple step-by-step maintenance and repair techniques, along with 16 case studies and a list of additional resources.
And Guide to Collection Care. Written by conservators, our illustrated primer covers the proper handling and storage of paper, photographs, textiles and books. This guide also includes case studies and a list of several additional resources.
