Hello Curtis,

I haven't yet read anything that says duplication of books on Bookshare that 
are also on NLS is a violation of any policy.  This wouldn't make any sense, 
since the books are in different formats: mostly audio with some in WebBraille 
for NLS versus all Braille and DAISY text only on Bookshare.

  Hey, that reminds me, aren't there many books on bookshare which are also a 
part of the NLS collection? Isn't that against policy?

  Hi gang,

  Since this has occurred twice in the past few months, I would like to remind 
everyone that Bookshare cannot accept books before they are published. Advance 
reading copies of books are distributed to various people before publication, 
with the proviso that the copies not be given to anyone else.  If someone mails 
or submits an advance reading copy to Bookshare, someone somewhere has broken 
an agreement and we cannot be party to that. So please do not mail us advance 
reading copies of books or submit them to the download list. They won't be put 
into the collection.

  Just a gentle reminder, Carrie
