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.

I was sure at one point we were told the whole purpose of the outsourcers was that they could work on books that were more complicated than volunteers were willing to or could handle. 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. -- Jamie in Michigan Currently Reading: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie Earn cash for answering trivia questions every 3 hours: http://instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/49497 See everything I've read this year at: www.michiganrxtech.com/books.html <http://www.michiganrxtech.com/books.html>
