Bookshare scanners do not proofread their own books. This is a practice
that improves accuracy.

To speed up the process of getting a scanned book into other collection
many volunteers put in a lot of time cleaning up the scan. Then volunteers
might run a mini marketing post on this list giving a summary of the book
and requesting a proofer. It would be counterproductive to to be the
submitter and then proof as your book would be rejected for further
