Hi Marilyn!

You are doing exactly what you should do. Don't worry. The Books In Processing page is just the place where all books being worked on currently are gathered for easy viewing. The Books In Processing page tells us all of the books available to validate, lists also those that are out for validation currently, those awaiting approval by an administrator after validation, and I think those which have been rejected. Don't quote me on that rejected part. I'm not sure that that list is actually there.

You are absolutely correct to go to the Download page to find books to work on, and the Upload page to send them on for approval by Bookshare staff once you've finished working on the book you've been fixing. You have it all correct. You just didn't know that there was a place to go to see a list of all books currently somewhere in the preapproval process. So, carry on! You're doing great!

Peace,
Mayrie

Hi, Mayrie, Bob, and Sue.  Thank you all for responding.  I obviously
need help.

I go to where it says "Publish Books," which you can't click on,
then under that are "Download" and "Upload."  I get books to
validate from "Download" and I give them back  to "Upload."
I've never been to "Books in Processing" and didn't know I
could also get books to validate from there.  Is that where I
should have been getting them all along?

I'm so terribly sorry for the confusion.

Sincerely,
Marilyn

Hi Marilyn,

Awaiting validation means the books that are on Step 1.  Speaking
of which,
you mentioned that you are working on a book that appears on Step 1
as well.
This means that there is a duplicate, and one of them will have to be
rejected.

HTH,

Sue S.

Hi Mayrie.

"Books in Processing"?  Mayrie, I didn't even know that was there!!!
Now that I do, and I just now went there, what does "Awaiting
Validation" mean?

Thanks and Hugs,
Marilyn

Hi Marilyn,

        You can try looking at the "books in processing" page.
That will
tell you where the books are, out for validation, or in the
administration
queue awaiting approval and addition to the Bookshare collection.

        Fear not though.  I have requests in at my library for the
following books from that series to scan.  I expect them to come
to me in
the next week, and I work pretty quickly.  there will be plenty to
validate once I get them scanned.  Here is the list of books that I
requested and will get.

The Princess Present
Party Princess
Princess On The Brink
Princess Lessons
Holiday Princess

        When I checked the wish list, those were what was still
needed and
my library system has copies of each.  So, I'll start scanning as
soon as
I have something to scan.

Peace,
Mayrie

G. Cindy,

I thought I'd go to the library today and pick up 2 of those
Princess Diary books you need validated for the 6th
graders.  I couldn't find ANY on the Bookshare Download
list.  Was I not fast enough and they're all gone already?
Can you help me?

Hugs,
Marilyn

Marilyn, Judy S., and any other sighted voluntees--if
you'd like to validate some of the remaining Princess
Diary books, please feel free to take them whether or
not they say hold for me. They need sighted help
because the headings of the diary are in a fancy font
and don't scan well or at all. Some did scan.

I didn't mention you, Jamie, because you already have
so much to do, and I know you prefer to scan.

These books are for a group of 6th-grade girls who
have to read them and prepare book reports on
individual books and then as a group prepare a report
on the whole series. They need to get into the
collection by May first. Maithe and Anastasia and
Shelley have been scanning like mad, and someone else
and I have been validating, but we could use a little
more help. The books are pretty easy to get from the
library because they're very popular. Also, they're
cute and funny--reminds us, perhaps, too, of our
teenage years and worries.
