I know you're right that the book has been submitted by the publisher. Whether or not it's in electronic format I don't know. It's true that it does not have to be validated, but people who have downloaded some of those books have found extraneous characters and, in some cases, no page numbers--possibly no page breaks, but that I can't remember. The bookshare staff supposedly is fixing up the books before adding them to the collection--I think. Unfortunately, I think they're replacing books that volunteers have already scanned and validated in some cases, and in those cases they are not better. I keep hoping that they won't replace them but will sit alongside them in the collection. Public libraries have more than one copy of a book; why can't bookshare? We do have a list of books donated by HarperCollins so people can check that list and not scan or validate a book on that list, but I think some are being donated by Random House. I must ask.
