Book Glue: Part 2

Today, the second day of WSQ Training for Model 4 Support Collection Maitenance, some of our course participants shared with us the following book glue used in their library: 

KapBond™ Repair and Reinforcement Glue

This is a similar kind of acid-free book glue used in general book repair in the libraries, I like the packing as it is more convenient to use. For more details, visit the following link:
