[bksvol-discuss] Re: source for publisher quality books

Hello Carrie,

I am so excited any time we can acquire publisher quality books and I do hope 
this trend will continue to grow as Bookshare moves forward.  I had heard not 
long ago that there may be some sort of hold up with the O'Reilly books.  Is 
there anything more you can tell us about that issue, and is there anything we 
can do to help put things right again so that the books will resume flowing 
from that wonderful source?

Thanks,

Darrell

  The publisher is initially donating 1000 of their books.  It's taken a while 
to work out the kinks (and there are a few big kinks yet to be fixed, but 
Engineering is working on them).  If this all goes well, we're hoping that they 
will donate more books, and that other publishers will get on the bandwagon 
too. We can but dream!

  Carrie

  Oh, I hope it wasn't one-time. I really enjoyed the publisher quality books. 
  Opening them in my web browser was different, but I liked having the links 
  to various sections of the books etc.

  So, I sure hope we haven't seen the last of publisher quality books.
