Hi Folks,
   Thanks to everyone who answered my question.  Reggie, Carie did the one I’ve 
got, too, and I know that she is always open for questions.  Again, thanks to

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!
