[bksvol-discuss] Re: Confusion about the Master List

Would someone please post the direct link to the Master List? I'm going to the wrong place when I try and check this out because I keep ending up at the books being scanned by volunteers list. smile. thanks!

Roger, Mayrie, & List,

I researched among staff just now.

It will always be necessary to check both the Master List and the
collection. Ideally, as soon as a title becomes live in the collection it is
removed from the list because it is no longer being processed. However, you
may find some overlap when searching both places (especially if the book was
processed between 2008-2009).

It may be helpful to note these time frames:
* As of April 1st, titles are being removed from the Master List the day
after they become live in the collection
* The Master List is updated to the Wiki and the website weekly
* Volunteer activity is updated daily but this does not necessarily mean
that your scan will be recorded in the Master List the day it is done

To determine if a book on the Master List is being done in-house or by a
volunteer look at the column titled "Origin"
It will show either "BKS" or "VOL" for in-house or volunteer.
If it shows VOL it will also list the volunteer's name in the Comments
column and, when provided to us, the name of the proofreader (syntax = P/B
for "proofread by" + name)

Just so you all know, Geneva is alert to your needs and contacts volunteers
directly as soon as she gets new information on a book that may impact the
volunteer who is scanning that book.

PS This note is much more articulate than the first draft I passed by Geneva
for her astute edit. Thanks Geneva!

HI Scott!

This is great!  Thanks for telling us about this change!  We didn't know
about it before, or at least I didn't.  Yaye!  One less place to search when
deciding whether or not to scan a book!  I'm so glad you told us this!

Mayrie

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Confusion about the Master List

Volunteers,

Apologies for any confusion. A new procedure we introduced to simplify life
for scanners seems to have complicated it instead.

We have been adding books on the Being Scanned list to our Master List, so
that volunteers don't have to look at both lists. They can just look at the
Master List for ALL of the books being scanned by volunteers or in-house at
Bookshare.

The confusion comes when volunteers see the books they are working on list
in the new combined Master List and assume they are being scanned in-house.
We will develop a way to indicate which books are being scanned by
volunteers and which are scanned in-house at Bookshare. I will notify the
list once this is implemented.
