[bksvol-discuss] Re: Book Quality

Nobody is scanning a bso. Instead, Carrie said she is putting the old rtf back so Marilyn can work on it.


Scanning a bso is one way a book in the collection can get fixed up. This way is another way.

Hello,

I have noticed several books that appear to have not been proofread
very well. Take for example
http://www.bookshare.org/browse/book/9173/Flawless%20Consulting%20?returnPath=L3NlYXJjaD9rZXl3b3JkPUNvbnN1bHRpbmcm,
which has weird symbols replacing text throughout, and is completely
unreadable, or a book like Elantris by Brandon Sanderson or Wizard's
First Rule, which both have inconsistant letters. (Sool V. Fool, harm
V. Ham, torn V. tom)

Is there any process by which vollunteers can help clean up poor books
likes these?
