Sure you can; the system doesn't care who's validating; it's only the staff 
that would object. Jill

  You can't even download a book to validate that you've submitted anyway, can 
you? Of course, I know you were just describing the various terms, but I was 
thinking that you can call it what you want when you submit it, the system see 
it as a submitted scan and someone would end up having to take it for 
validation anyway.

    Hi, Karen. Your book sounds really interesting, even if it's at the 
juvenile level. I'll definitely read it. Just so you know, what you are doing 
in proofreading your book is what we call prevalidating. Prevalidating is the 
work done by a person who has scanned a book before actually submitting it to 
Bookshare. As a side note, validaters adore people who do some proofreading of 
their scans before submitting. If people know that you do some proofreading 
before submitting a scan, they will line up at your door to work on your books. 

    Self-validating is a term used to describe when a person submits a book and 
then takes it to validate as well. This is not allowed because Bookshare wants 
to make sure that at least two people plus the admin look at a book before it 
enters the collection. So what you're doing is great. It's just not what is 
meant by self-validating when people use that term.

    Lissi, one of our creative volunteers, started calling us Booksharians, and 
the name has stuck. So welcome to Bookshare, and I'm glad to have you as a 
fellow Booksharian.

      Hi bookies - 

      I am a new volunteer.  Hopefully I can live up to even half of the level 
some of you all achieve here. 

      I almost have my first book to submit.  So could you please add this to 
the books in progress list under my name?
