Thanks so much Lynn, this is wonderful news. this group is using grants to scan in recent, copy-righted material, and make it available to blind people. you can sign up and use the library at: http://www.archive.org/ William, it's not the number of books you can read, it's wanting a particular book, and not being able to get it because NLS only records best sellers, and bookshare and RFBD are so unreliable, you never know what they will have. they tend to also have best sellers.
