Penney, I'm going to forward your note to the volunteer list who can give you more info, depending on what equipment you use. The short answer is that you read the scanned copy as you any book you download from he collection, and any typographical errors you hear or see you correct. First you have to beregistered as a vounteer. Then there is a volunteer manual that helps--tells you what kinds of erros anr formatting errors. to change--and the volunteer list people are very helpful and good at answering questions. In the meantime, two people have volunteered to proof the book; I wll tell you when it is enteres into the collection so you won't have to constantly check. smile Cindy Wish List (i.e., books wanted added to the collection) and books-being-scanned list available at sites below --- On Tue, 10/13/09, Penny Reeder <penny.reeder@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > From: Penny Reeder <penny.reeder@xxxxxxxxx> > Subject: Re: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Currently scanning Republican Gonorrah > To: "Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx> > Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2009, 5:41 AM > How does proof reading work, since I > can't see (and don't own) the print copy, what happens when > I encounter something I think is an error? > > I am interested and look forward to your response. > > Thanks so much. > Penny > > > At 07:26 PM 10/12/2009, you wrote: > > Penney--do you want to proofread it?
