We use protective enclosures for materials housed in all the KU Libraries’ system. For circulating collections, we use pamphlets, pockets or envelopes in pamphlet binders, or corrugated boxes. For the Spencer Research Library’s collections, we construct custom boxes called tuxedo boxes for books that have fragile, detached, or missing covers. We also create special housings for objects in Spencer collections by fitting the interior of standard archival boxes with foam, Tyvek, and other materials to protect the items and facilitate their use.
