Hi, Julia. In his speech Jim said that though Google had offered the books, Bookshare doesn't have the 25 million dollars it would take to OCR the books and add them to our existing collection. So unless there's something very new, I'd guess the answer to your question is that we'll get them if and when Bookshare has 25 mil to spend that isn't part of a grant ear-marked for something else. (smile) Anyone know how we could raise that kind of capital for Bookshare? Maybe we could find a way to get some corporate donors once the economy perks up again. -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
