BSOs, Childrens' Books, and More

BSOs

  • BSO stands for "Better Scan Of"
  • If you browse the collection and find a book that is of poor quality, or, if you are not a member, if you find out about one such book, you may rescan the file as a "BSO"
  • Submit the book as usual but put the letters "BSO" in all capitals in front of the title
  • Proofreaders should leave the letters where they are
  • An admin will remove them when reviewing the book for approval and, at the same time, remove the existing version of the book

Childrens' Books

  • If the book is under 35 pages, page numbers are not required unless they are already in the book
  • Never repaginate the text
  • If the book is over 35 pages and does not have page numbers, contact the Volunteer Coordinator
  • Repetitive text must be separated by three asterisks (*) or all but the first instance will be removed

Other Unusual Files

Poetry

  • Our conversion process removes blank lines so be extra careful when formatting poetry
  • Repetitive text must be separated by three asterisks (*) or all but the first instance will be removed
  • Use one or three asterisks to denote large spaces in the text or text separated by one single decorative character
