If Random House is also donating books. That's great, but it would be helpful to get a list of books so that we don't duplicate work. It takes time and effort to get a book scanned and validated.

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.Cindy --- On Wed, 7/30/08, Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx <Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx> wrote:From: Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx <Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx> Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Publisher Quality To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Wednesday, July 30, 2008, 8:52 PM I am just curious about this one. What does publisher quality mean? If I may guess I would think that the book is submitted by the publisher in electronic format and so it does not have to be validated. **************Get fantasy football with free live scoring.
