[bksvol-discuss] Re: Special Step 1 Request

Hi,
To be clear, then, if we see a book that is in a scanner format, we should
reject it, right? Also, if someone submits a book in .doc, not RTF, format,
and we can turn it into RTF, is it OK to do that?

Thanks.

Jim

Jim,

That is against Bookshare policy because of the reason someone already
gave.
The system is set up to track credits based on who submits a book, and
resubmitting someone else's book in RTF would cause the submission to be
credited to the wrong person if the RTF file is the copy which is
validated.
The staff has enough to do without having to manually correct problems with
credits.  It would also cause the staff and volunteers a nightmare dealing
with duplicates.

Hi,
Would it be OK to ask that those who have scanning software download books
that are in kes, ark, win, and other formats to grab the books on step one
and put them back up in RTF format to be validated? The books already there
that in doc format are not a problem.

Thanks.
