Hi, Yes, I am rescanning a book that has no copyright date because it is in the public domain. Because these books are out of copyright, there is no copyright notice. To notify it's readers of this fact, Bookshare has placed a notice at the beginning of every public domain book that looks like the following attachment. It is this notice that I would like to know how I obtain. Thanks, Jess On 12/3/08, siss52 <siss52@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi Jessica, > > I do not understand your question.
