Some time ago, either in a newsletter or, I think, a
Bulletin that Lisa sent out, was this note: "If you’re
a student or teacher requesting a book specifically
needed for school, go to the front of the line with
mail to: schoolbookrequest@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

If Robin can get the book from the publisher for the
collection or Carrie or someone gets it and processes
it, I assume it will be both scanned and
proofread--hopefully. Then our students can
concentrate on studying and learning. smile
