The mission of the preservation department of the University of Arkansas Libraries is to preserve to the greatest extent possible the investment made by the University community in research materials housed in the library.

Items with a status in the Library Catalog of BIND PREP may still be available for in-library use. Check at the Circulation Desk for availability.

Items with a status in the Library Catalog of TO BIND have been sent out to our commercial binder and will usually be returned within 4-6 weeks. Contact the Preservation Department to be notified by email when an item returns to the library.
