Hi, AlyceAnn, Patty, and Jenny! Welcome to all of you! I am one of the volunteers who monitors the list, and although I haven't written here for a few days, I've read every post... I think! <Smile> I was out of town last weekend, and when I returned home, I discovered that my kitchen was flooded, due to a faulty ice maker in my refrigerator. Actually, a huge portion of my carpet and flooring in my house will have to be replaced. Meanwhile, I've been re-located to a hotel about ten minutes away. I have new respect for all of the hurricane victims who had to leave their homes so quickly! Anywaay, due to some problems with the hotel's ISP, I have had a hard time sending e-mail. I think it's all fixed now. <Smile>

AlyceAnn, you are welcome to submit books in other formats, although RTF is the preferred one. And Patti, to answer your question, the numbers you see are page numbers. One set is Braille page numbers, and the other is print. Hope this helps!

Jana

Hi
I just signed up to be a volunteer 2 days ago. I was told in my welcome
email that I would be contacted. I haven't. Since I haven't I thought I
would ask my questions here.

I have many scanned books. I have proofed many. I would like to check to see
if they are needed. Question one: I'm not sure where to go to check the
library that is there now.


Question two: I also need to know if books need to be submitted in scan form
or if they can be submitted in Word Doc or some other text form. I have them
in Word text, and others. Can I submit them that way?


Question three: I am not clear on what the criteria is on the submission. It
says that the copyright must be on the book. Where should it be, in the
front or in the back.


I can't think of more now but if I do I will ask later. Thanks for your
help!

AlyceAnn
