[bksvol-discuss] Re: Tough Call

I wonder how these multiple file packages got through then. As I said, I tried uploading one (as an experiment) and i was given an error message.

Robin,

You're correct.  The Bookshare tools don't work on zipped files containing
multiple files.  Here's a passage from the instructions to
schools/universities which states that.

? You submit only 1 book per file (i.e., no course-readers).

? Each book must be in one file (i.e., books may not broken up into separate
files per chapters or sections).

There were several books which were in multiple files, and the copyright
information, title and author weren't shown in the book. I think I had to
reject at least five books like that. It's unfortunate, but these are the
rules. Lovely of the submitter to submit all of his/her textbooks and other
readings, but in this case they weren't helpful to bookshare.

I didn't even think one  could submit a zipped file c containing multiple
files. I've tried uploading such a file, and always get an error message.
