Library and departmental collections of bound books and periodicals play a central role in higher education. Ideas and valuable information are stored on their pages. But the covers on books weaken through use and the individual issues or pages of periodicals need to be retained in a usable format. It is the mission of the University Bindery to keep these materials in good repair and readily available for use by students, members of staff and the public.

At the UNZA main library, we have a team of fully trained professionals, who use book binder’s skills and craftsmanship to bind materials. The service is available between 09.00hrs- 17.00hrs on weekdays but is dependent on staff availability and, at busy periods, binding cannot always be done immediately. The unit provides a wide range of excellent binding services such as: repair of damaged books, binding research projects and theses.
