[bksvol-discuss] Re: contents in columns?

No, David, absolutely not!  Page numbers are important, and we should
include them in books which we scan ourselves.  However, if you are
validating a book of good text quality which does not happen to include page
numbers, please do not reject it.  Thanks for your work!

  I am working on validating a book which obviously been scanned. The scan
is excellent with only a few errors. It is the entire text of the print
book. However, there are no page numbers. Am I suppose to reject the book
because there are no page numbers even though everything else is present?

  Sorry,  there must be a 1 to 1 match between printed pages and etext
pages.  If pages are missing they should be integrated.  If there are
duplicate pages extra copy must be removed.
  If it is clear there is no 1 to 1 page correspondence,  at least for the
body-text after all front matter, and nothing can be done about it,  the
book should be trashed.

  Let's keep quality up, folks!

  Hi, Rachael!  The main thing is to make sure that all of the text is
there.  If yyou have access to the book, you can re-scan pages to make the
numbers match up if you want to.  Take care!

  In general you should scan with column recognition turned off and
two-pages-per-scan turned on.  It may be faster to rescan the table of
contents than to fix it.

             [bksvol-discuss] contents in columns?














  hello, i've only validated until now but thought i'd try a bit of
scanning.
  The table of contents is in two columns, do I leave the information this
way
  or do I put it on separate pages so it flows numerically?
  Ex:
  chapter 1        chapter 5
  1-1                 5-1
  1-2                 5-2
  etc                  etc

  OR

  chapter 1
  1-1
  1-2
  etc
  chapter 2
  etc
  chapter 3
  .
  .
  chapter 5
  5-1
  5-2
  etc


  Thank You
  Rachel
