a Hearty welcome, Melinda. There is a manual that you can read to get you started. I've been volunteering for several years but only recently read the manual, since I thought I knew what was in it, Tb I did learn some new things. However, I'm the kind of person that if I were new and read it I'd be overwhelmed. What I would do, I'd read one section at a time, and then read just the part that pertained to me, i.e., if I were going to scan, I'd read that section--and then I'd probably start and if I had a question I'd go back to the manual and look for the answer, and if that didn't help, I'd ask here on the list.--but that's just me, because I get intimidated by lots of insttructins at one time. smile Cindy Wish List (i.e., books wanted added to the collection) and books-being-scanned list available at sites below Wish List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Bookshare+Wish+List Books Being Scanned List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Books+Being+Scanned+List --- On Sat, 10/31/09, Melinda Pethel <mjpethel@xxxxxxx> wrote: > From: Melinda Pethel <mjpethel@xxxxxxx> > Subject: [bksvol-discuss] New kid on the block > To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx > Date: Saturday, October 31, 2009, 7:17 AM > Hello all, > > My name is Melinda and I am new to this.
