Book Unpacking and Replacement

Recovered and Restored Books

Here are some recovered books ready to be unpacked and placed on shelves. Restored books impose special considerations for relocation as the work involved is often physically demanding. It is therefore important to have a good plan in place so that books only have to be moved once. This is helped greatly by a coherent set of documentation available against which to compare our inventory lists. Our personnel will coordinate their replacement activities with your on-site requirements.

Minimizing the Work and Expense of Replacing Recovered Books

Unlike documents which can be photocopied onto fresh paper, books cannot be physically reconstructed and drying is the only practical alternative for recovery of the information. Since books must be intact and servicable after restoration, Document Reprocessor's patented Thermaline® process is the ideal solution for drying and straightening water-damaged books. Thermaline® restoration has a very high success rate and is usually significantly cheaper than replacing water-damaged volumes.
