That remind me; my renew didn't show up. I'd better go check and see if I can 
renew now.
 Als, whatever engineering has done to help Carrie is wonderful (Or maybe it's 
that Carrie is wonderful!. My  proofed books are getting into the collection 
almost the same time I check them in.

>WOW!  I just renewed a book, at 2 a.m, that 
before the improvements would have taken about 5 minutes at best at this time 
night to renew (usually more like ten minutes).  It took less than a minute 
total.  Then I uploaded a book that had been proofread.  That took 
less than two minutes, including the time to upload the book using dial-up! 
Before the improvements it was taking at least 15 minutes to half an hour, at 
this time of night, if it worked at all.

>>Book quality  reports:  Submitting a book quality report is now much easier.  
>> Simply sign into Bookshare, pull up the book, click on “report book quality

>>On another  note, we have a new publisher partner, Cornell University  Press.
