That makes sense to me, that they should work on the more complicated books. Perhaps the grant is the reason they are not. I really don't know.

 Cookbooks seem to fit that bill. Of course that was pre-grant so
 maybe their focus now is just getting a mass quantity of books that
 meet the grant conditions into the collection.

 I agree that cookbooks do take a long time and it's not an easy thing
 to do, even with sight. After a while all of those fractions look the
 same when you've seen hundreds of them.
