Hi All

One of our staff members, Viji Dilip wrote in to say she has a list of 9000 (!) 
titles which she can get into the collection, but before doing that she will 
need to check which ones among them are already on the Bookshare site. To make 
this mammoth task more manageable Viji is thinking of dividing the list up into 
"bite-sized" chunks (smile) of 500 each and she wanted to know if some of our 
Bookshare volunteers would be up for helping out by each taking on a "chunk" 
and checking its titles against the collection. This would of course be of 
immense help and would greatly accelerate the process of getting the books up 
and available. Viji is ccd on this email so those of you interested in pitching 
in, please do be in touch with her directly.

With continued appreciation for the collective time and heart of this group...

Happy Monday!
