I'm Carrie, one of the Bookshare volunteers who helps scan, OCR and validate books. Since I live a mile away from the Bookshare office, I go into the office to help out once or twice a week. Because of my close proximity, I can ask questions by standing in front of people instead of having to wait for them to respond to emails. The people on the staff are all quite busy, and sometimes don't get around to reading all the emails on the discussion group, so I try to act as a liaison sometimes between the volunteer group and the staff. When I noticed a lot of mistakes in the titles and authors earlier this year, I created the guidelines (they're in a couple of other emails) and got permission to post them on the discussion group.
