Hi Jay.

What you do is submit the .brf files back to bookshare as new files.

If they are cleaned up and brailled nice and pretty than much the better.

Do make sure to maintain of course copyright name and holder, title, author, 
and of course page breaks.


The downside to only fixing up the Braille files, is alas that the daisy 
files won't be fixed too.

But such is the way of the world, smile.

I say submit them.

And am working my way through the transcriber's course, would say go for it, 
if you have the desire, smile.

Please send along some guidance or ideas.

I have 5, so far, books that, I'm pretty sure, are part of the
I have taken the print books and rechecked them as well as made .brf
files that are redone and completely rechecked for errors.
I have .dxp and .brf files for each of these.
They have been done with title page and other front matter per NLS
I'm not a certified NLS transcriber but should be able to pass the test
to become one.

Can these be put back, or be submitted if necessary, to the collection?
What do I need to do?
I don't have the daisy format for these. Do I need them?

The books are:
Dykstra's War
Fallen Angles
The Compleat McAndrew
Time Traders
Time Traders II
