[bksvol-discuss] Re: feed my addiction

it is a wonderful tool that internet.

I usually have a list, I will call my library as we don't have a catalog 
yet, and then, I will have them grab the ones that match, smile.  Then I go 
and get them, bring them home and try to scan.

Is the only way I have found it to work, am really excited though as In 
August, I will be at a university again, with University lending privileges 
and a online catalog, smile.  Watch out Bookshare, smile.!

I try to get more when ever I can.  I often wish I could stand at my local 
library's shelves with a hand held device capable of looking at both the 
library's computerized catalogue and the bookshare site.  That would be the 
only way to get the three peaces of information I need all at once.  I need 
the
 online library catalogue to tell me what is available and in the Star Trek 
series, the book itself from off the shelf to tell me if it is scannable, 
and the bookshare site to tell me if it is already available and therefore 
doesn't need to be scanned.
At home i can check the list of star trek books my local library has against 
the books I can find on bookshare, but don't know if the book is scannable. 
I also find that the facts change before I can get the book, which can drive 
me crazy.  It either disappears from my local library or appears on 
bookshare between the time I look and the time I get it.  If I am at the 
library I can't look at the bookshare site just to check when I come accross 
something I would like to scan.

Can't you tell I am rather addicted to the Internet?  I hate being separated 
from my primary source of information. ;-)

  I,



  Kellie, Sarah, and anyone else, please feed my addiction for Star Trek 
books.  You have done a good job so far, but please continue.  I'm willing 
to validate what you scan.  Please let me know.
