HI Jill:

Which books did you see and on which list?

  Perhaps there needs to be a link informing contributors that they need to 
list the book they are planning to submit. I'm not a computer programmer but if 
the book could then be removed from the list when it is actually submitted, 
that might go a long way to prevent what I found so upsetting. This same 
technique, if possible, should also be applied to the bbbooks on Rui's list 
because the last time I looked a week ago there were three books that I knew 
about that were already on the catalog list. I'm talking about the kind of 
feature that puts our submitted books immediately on the step 1 list and also 
removes them immediately from the upload list when we upload them. If 
engineering is going to be doing some work on the web site, I wonder how 
difficult it would be to accomplish this and at the same time give instruction 
to submitters that they should list the book they are working on so that others 
won't duplicate it. Perhaps this problem doesn't occur very often but it is 
certainly frustrating and disappointing when it does and a lot of time has been 
put in on making the submission as good as possible.
