Thanks for this.  I have a raw scan also, but it was Carrie who put it up,
and I am certain she just didn't throw it up! (smiles) Thank goodness she
put raw scan before the title! Very helpful!

    A raw scan is simply a book that has been scanned and that's all. There
has been no preproofing, no stripping of headers or anything else. It might
be pretty clean and it might be a mess. Checking with the submitter about
any issues it has seems pointless to me because it is likely that the
submitter does not even know. A raw scan is most likely submitted by someone
who has no interest in the book and just scanned it and threw it up and so
the submitter has likely not even read it.

It is my understanding that a raw scan could have pagination issues, among
other things. Usually they would require a sighted proofer (not always
though) and perhaps a copy of the print book. I would check with the scanner
and see exactly what issues are there.

Hi Folks, 

Exactly what is a raw scan?  I took one from the check-out list and of
course then thought that I might not be able to do it.  Does a raw scan
require a sighted proofer?  Thanks!
