Cults of America / by Maurice Beam. (OCLC #5796766)

Vinabind is a binding process where the paperback cover (and any stickers or labels on it) is laminated and then the book is re-bound with that cover. RDA on Making Notes on Item-Specific Carrier Characteristics says to “make a note about carrier characteristics of the specific item being described if considered important for identification or selection.”

This volume is not an early printed resource (which have different rules in RDA) and this did not seem like an important enough feature to record, so I did not mention it even in our local copy. In OCLC, local binding does not generally justify a new record, though one record (and only one that I can find!) does mention it.
