Materials Preparation and Collections Housing
All incoming SUL/AIR general collections materials, regardless of their format and media, are routed through the Preservation Department in order to be prepped for shelving and circulation.

The materials are sent to the Binding & Finishing Unit from the Cataloging Department or from the various branch libraries. Here materials receive spine labels with call numbers, date-due slips, gift plates, property stamps, and security targets. Some incoming materials are sent to a commercial bindery by Binding & Finishing before they are sent to the shelves for circulation.

Other materials are routed to the Conservation & Book Repair Unit to receive housings before they are shelved. Housings are enclosures which protect, provide support, or keep items in several pieces together. Examples of collections housings include phase boxes and pamphlet bindings.
