I scanned this myself. I may take it down and get a sighty to help fix the chapters. It's not a big deal really, they're not named so leaving them out isn't really gonna hurt the book. ----- Original Message ----- From: Estelnalissi To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, September 09, 2007 2:26 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: problem with a book Dear Robert, You can ask the person who scanned the book to contact you with the information you need. You can also call your local library. If they have the same edition of the book you are working on, which is usually the case if it has the same ISBN, librarians will sometimes dictate the table of contents over the phone or provide other information as long as you don't take up too much of their time. Grandma Cindy and Jamie Yates often help us when we are working on books we feel are worthwhile but have snags in them we can't untangle without vision. I'm thinking Jamie is a little overwhelmed with her family, job, and pharmacy studies, but I shouldn't speak for her. If you ask Cindy or Jamie for help, and the job isn't overwhelming, they'll get the print copy of a book that's giving us problems from their library and help us. They might provide some chapter names and page numbers, or scan a few missing pages, or answer specific questions about garbled words. Cindy has helped me with both of these problems. If the whole book was a muddle, I'd put it back on step one or reject it, but if it's just a matter of a few problems, both ladies have been very helpful. If you feel really stumped and solving the problem will take more time than you want to give it, try getting a different book from step one, a book with an excellent rating that may be more validator friendly. Good luck.

I've done my best to guess where they might be, but my guesses probably aren't accurate. What should I do here?
