RECOSIDO DE FOLLETO George A. Smather s Libraries Gua basica para el cosido de documentos Por lo general, se debe coser un folleto despus de sacar las grapas para as poder crear una imagen clara del artculo. La agrupacin (o grupo de papeles ) es normalmente de hojas sueltas engrapadas en el margen o de un grupo de hojas plegadas que est n grapadas por el pliegue. Ya sea suelto o d oblado, la costura es la misma. Cosiendo : Necesitar tener un n mero impar de agujeros para este tipo de costura Para libros de menos de 8 pulgadas (20 centmetros) de altura, necesitar aproximadamente tres agujeros en total. Para libros de ms de 8 pul gadas, necesitar ms agujeros Los agujeros no deben estar separados el uno del otro mas que aproximadamente 2 pulgadas (5 centmetros), y los agujeros deben estar al menos a 1/2 pulgada (1 2 centmetros) de los bordes superior e inferior. Revise los agujeros existentes (como los agujeros de grapas). Si el papel es fuerte alrededor de los agujeros stos mismos puede n usar se para la c ostura. Debera haber agujeros de costura cerca del centro y cerca de l borde superior e inferior del folleto o grupo de papeles. Los agujeros deben est aproximadamente a pulgada (1 2 centmetros) de los extremos. Si necesita los agujeros en una ubicacin diferente a los agujeros originales (o los agujeros originales son demasiado frgiles para coser), alinee los papeles y mantenga todo el grupo junt o con las pinzas en la parte superior y posterior de l os papeles Deslice una tabla pequea debajo del grupo de papele s donde va a hacer un agujero en el papel. Usando su punzn, lentamente perfor e el grupo de papeles desde la parte superior hacia abajo Tras torcerlo lentamente a medida que avanza, asegur es e que los dedos no estn cerca de la punta afilada del punzn. Corte un trozo de hilo que sea aproximadamente el doble de la altura de l grupo de papeles y cosa de la siguie nte manera (vea los diagramas en la parte inferior de la pagina Termine atando los extremos del hilo en un nudo cuadrado alrededor del hilo que no pas por el agujero central. Recort e el hilo. INSTRUMENTOS Punzn Aguja Hilo de lino T ijeras pequeas Peso p equeo T abla pequea Una regla ( no es necesario ) Pinzas


RESEWING A PAMPHLET George A. Smather s Libraries Basic Guidelines for When to Stitch Something T ogether Typically, sewing a pamphlet together happens after you have removed staples in order to image the item clearly during digitization The grouping usually consists of loose sheets that were stapled together at the margin or a group of folded sheets stapled through the fold. Whether loose or folded, the sewing is the same. Sewing: You will need to have an odd number of holes for this sewing pattern. For books less than 8 inches (20 centimeters) in height, you will need a minimum of three holes For books greater than 8 inches, you will need more holes preferably at least one hole for every two inches You dont want holes farther apart than about 2 inches (5 centimeters) from each other and holes should be at least 1/2 inch (1 2 centimeters) from the the top and bottom edges There should be sewing holes near the center as well as near the head and tail of the grouping about (1 2 centimeters) away from the ends. Check the holes from the previous fasteners (like staples). If the paper is strong around the hol es, you can use the same holes as your sewing holes though they may need to be enlarged using the awl. If you need holes in a different location other than original holes (or original holes are too fragile to sew through) align the stack of pape r and kee p the whole grouping together via Bulldog clips at the head and tail of the grouping. Slip a small square of binders board underneath the grouping where you are going to punch a hole in the paper. Using your awl, slowly pierce the grouping from the top d own twist slowly as you go, making sure that you are not putting your fingers in the way of the sharp point of the awl Cut a length of thread about 2 tim es the height of the grouping and sew as follows (see diagram s at bottom of page ). Finish by tying the ends of thread into a square knot around the thread that skipped the center hole. Trim thread TOOLS NEEDED Awl Needle Linen Thread Small Scissors Small weight Small square of binders board Ruler (maybe) Bulldog clips
