YOu are not supposed to validate your own books.

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. (grin)

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?
