"At bindery" means that the journal, book, or other publication has been sent to a facility for binding. Repairs that cannot be made by our Technical Services department are sent out to professional book binders. In addition, journals, as well as select magazines and newspapers, are bound together into one volume when a specific number of issues are collected together.

Usually this process takes a month or more. If you need a specific item that is at the bindery, use Prospector or Request It to locate another copy of the book or journal. If you need assistance, contact the help desk at Coe Library located on Level 2. They can also be contacted at or 307-766-2070.
