I realize that by 'old' it was meant 'old on the list'. The thing I don't 
understand is why does it matter if they are on there for a long time? Even if 
they are on there for 5 years, somebody, somewhere might come through and 
validate them at some point. As long as Bookshare has the disk space for them, 
who is it hurting?

I am sighted, so I don't have access to either kes or ark books unfortunately. 
I was cleaning up the .txt. books and now I'm working on .doc books. I've done 
a couple of 'older' books lately that would appear to me to be useful to anyone 
doing an MBA, Econ degree or a Ph.D. in business studies. The information 
provided would not be considered 'outdated' and could be useful for years to

It's great that you will validate them. Start at the
bottom of the page one list and check submission dates
by scrolling to the bottom once you've clicked on
"download" The first entry will tell you when the book
was submitted. If you don't want to take that book you
can just go back and look for another book. You don't
hav to download it.

Can you do Ark or Kes books? Those are the ones that
fewest of us are able to validate.
