Just place the address of the list of outsourced books at the top or bottom of the being scanned message with a sentence about what it is. Heck, if people could manage their own entries in a being scanned list by adding and deleting them for themselves, you could just send out a weekly reminder of the two addresses and leave it at that.

I completely agree here. Pavi is sending the list to this list, and it is on the site, so there is no reason to add it to the being scanned list. If there are folks not on the list, who you send the being scanned list to, and they would like this list, you could simply forward it to those individuals.

Cindy, please don't add this information to the being-scanned list you're maintaining. smile. It's a duplication of effort, and it's an absolutely huge list of four to five thousand books.

Also, it's a work in progress by Bookshare, and it contains not only books being scanned by outsourcers, but also contains books that have already been scanned by outsourcers.

My reasoning is that this list is going to be updated twice a week by Bookshare, all the volunters have the link to it, it's enormous, and will make for a unmanageably large daily email download for posting to these lists.

Just my thoughts.  smile.

That's very helpful. I'll convert it to rtf and put it in a section to the being-scanned list

Hi All,



In
a
conversation with VAT (Volunteer Advisory Team) Chairman,
Bob Wiley yesterday
the suggestion came up of sending out an update to the
volunteer list every
time the Books In Collection or In Process by
Outsourcers/Publishing Partners.
We’ve
decided to implement that – in order to let volunteers
know when that list is
modified and also to give more recent volunteers a heads up
on the fact that
such a list exists!
In general
the list is updated twice
a week. A new set of updates was just made and the updated
list can be viewed
by clicking the link below:

All good
things,
Pavi
