Hi, 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 The information provided would not be considered 'outdated' and could be useful for years to come.

By "old" books is meant not old in terms of publication date but that they've been sitting on the step one page for months--in at least one case that I saw, over a year. 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. Cindy ____________________________________________________________________________________Building a website is a piece of cake. Yahoo!
