BOOKCRAFT: Simple Techniques for the Maintenance and Repair of Books (pdf) is meant for schools and fox portraitlibraries, but provides quick reference to the parts of a bound book along with illustrated guides to their maintenance and repair.

The Alaska State Library also has a helpful series of PDFs, collectively called Conservation Book Repair: A Training Manual, similarly filled with illustrated instructions ranging from cleaning musty books and tightening loose bindings to maintaining an entire library collection.
