Hi all,

Original message:

     I will be returning to school in a month.  I was wondering, all
my books are going to be coming to me in a PDF (portable document
format).  I was wondering: could I convert them to RTF and post them
on bookshare if I included the copyright notice?

No, Jess, since they have been given to you in this format, you cannot put them on Bookshare.

     In addition, I am working on becoming a Braille transcriber.
This means that I can scan in and Braille textbooks for school
districts.  I was wondering if it was okay if I put those textbooks up
as well as long as I have the copyright notice?

Now, if you scan them yourself, yes, you may do that. The copyright laws are strict about what can and can't be placed on Bookshare.

     On another topic: I am validating a book that has two page
numbers on the same page.  I can conclude the first number belongs to
the previous page because that page has no page numbers.  I was
wondering if it would be okay for me to fix this error.

Yes, you may fix these errors.
