Hi Grandma Cindy and Others, The details of how volunteers will contact each other when alias names are used is still being figured out G. Cindy(to answer your question) but I will definitely let you know when I do, how it's going to work! On a somewhat related note-- starting now, writing to the Volunteer Coordinator instead of the list is something we want to encourage volunteers to do when they are not happy with a submission/submitter they are working with. As staff the VC can take your issue and then go into the system, take a look at the relevant title history to see if there are any extra "clues" as to what might be happening in there and then check up on the submitter/submission in question. Based on what she finds, she can then effectively follow up with the concerned person and pass on suggestions if there are any to be passed on. I know in the past there hasn't been a specific person you could address such issues to, but it would be great now that I'm in that role, to see if this is a more efficient, less headachy way for volunteers to deal with such problems!

Thanks Pavi and bookshare admins. How will it work? If one clicks on the alias will mail get to the person, or will we ask Carrie or Lindsie or you, Pavi, to forward our questions to the person and/or ask them to contact us?
