[bksvol-discuss] Re: List of Outsourcers & Publisher Titles Update

Hi Lori, this list is not intended to help in Lissi's case. That is another issue that should be taken up with bookshare, or Pavi.


This list is to prevent us from working on something that volunteers are already working on. I do wish the outsourcers would check Cindy's list before working on something.

I must be missing something here. How does this list help with issues like Lissi's. As I understand her email comments, the books she mentioned were already in the collection and WERE REPLACED by the outsourcers. If I am correct, why would they replace books already in the collection and how does this list prevent that from happening.

And apparently I am the only one who is perplexed by having to check at least four lists to determine if I should scan a book or not: Cindy's list, the outsourcer list, Books in Processing list and the collection itself? That is partially why I would now rather proofread than scan.

That's very helpful. I'll convert it to rtf and put it in a section to the being-scanned list

Hi All,





In
a
conversation with VAT (Volunteer Advisory Team) Chairman,
Bob Wiley yesterday
the suggestion came up of sending out an update to the
volunteer list every
time the Books In Collection or In Process by
Outsourcers/Publishing Partners.

We’ve
decided to implement that – in order to let volunteers
know when that list is
modified and also to give more recent volunteers a heads up
on the fact that
such a list exists!

In general
the list is updated twice
a week. A new set of updates was just made and the updated
list can be viewed
by clicking the link below:

All good
things,

Pavi
