If they are listed as safe that does not necessarily mean that Bookshare has tried to get them to sign on. It just means that they have not signed. That so-called safe list was started by volunteers. It is a list of publishers that were not on the "unsafe" list and if you come across any others that are not signed up with Bookshare it would be good if you reported them so that they can be added to the safe list. However, you can request publishers. Just don't hold your breath about their being signed. I am sure that Bookshare has its hands full contacting publishers as it is.

I didn't realize Bookshare members could request publishers. There's one I would love to have signed on with Bookshare, The Dalkey Archive Press, an imprint of w.w. Norton, but the publisher Wiki entry lists them as "safe", which probably means Bookshare has already tried to get them to sign on and failed.On 29-Mar-12 03:43, Cindy wrote:I think it's just robins@xxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:robins@xxxxxxxxxxxx> Her name *and title are **Robin Seamon, Publisher liaison* CindyJoin us in celebrating our 10^th Anniversary! <http://blog.bookshare.org/2012/03/11/join-bookshares-worldwide-10th-anniversary-celebration/><http://blog.bookshare.org/2012/03/11/join-bookshares-worldwide-10th-anniversary-celebration/> TinyURL.com/752cyrs *From:* Amber Wallenstein <amber.wallens@xxxxxxxxx> <mailto:amber.wallens@xxxxxxxxx> *To:* bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *Sent:* Wednesday, March 28, 2012 1:41 PM *Subject:* [bksvol-discuss] Re: FW: Kensington Publishing Corp.
