[bksvol-discuss] Re: No advance reading copies allowed

Yes, the strip that says 'Advance Reading Copy' is usually small.  I had 
chopped, scanned, OCRed and was about to submit a donated book when I noticed 
the strip across the top of the book.  Hadn't noticed it before.  I am sure 
that our volunteers wouldn't notice it either, and that the people who donated 
and submitted the books were innocence of any intentional wrongdoing.  I 
wouldn't be surprised if other Advance Reading Copies have surreptitiously 
gotten into the collection, but it certainly wasn't intentional on anyone's 
part.  Just gotta stay alert to such things to minimize their occurrences.

I didn't know that was happening, and I haven't done
it, but it's possible, Carrie, that the submitters and
validators didn't know what they were doing. Even
though they're not supposed to, Advanced reading
copies of books find their way into used-book stores,
and if a blind person happens to get one, he/she
probably wouldn't notice that it's an Advanced Reading
copy. Because we're in West L.A. where a lot of
Indstry (Hollywood) people are and they donate a lot
of books to our used-book store in the library, I
notice them when I check in the books and put them in
the recycle barrel. Stores are not supposed to sell
them, but I don't know how many bookstore owners or
their employees even notice--it usually says Advanced
Copy in small letters. Or care.

My suggestion, assuming the best on the part of the
submitter, is for bookshare to reject the book with
that as the reason. smile
