[bksvol-discuss] Re: We need a way to tell what the outsourcers are scanning.

I suggest that before scanning anything one checks the list of publisher 
donors, and then not scanning any book with one of these publishers listed as 
the publisher of the book.
I've pasted my old list below, but it possibly needs to be updated. 

Harper Collins, O'Reilly, Hachette and Perseus--don't scan their books--being

I checked the collection. I checked the books being scanned list. I checked the 
checkout list. To the best of my knowledge I checked everything I am supposed 
to check before scanning. Malcolm X talks to Young People was not in any of 
those places, so I ordered it to scan. When it arrived I was working on another 
one, so I put it aside. Now I just checked the collection again and it had been 
added two days ago by Worth Trust.
