The eBooks for this project are almost without exception taken from scan copies of the
original books held in University libraries. When we get them, they have been processed
by OCR software to extract the content.
When we acquire them, they are FULL of OCR errors. Each page in each book has to
be carefully compared page by page with the scans and errors corrected for
readability and accuracy. It can take 3-7 manhour days to do this per book and
1-2 manhour days to HTML format them for the web and produce the various eBook
editions for download.
There are presently 4 online books entered into the library of well over 20+ books
planned so far as resources.
[NOTE: Normally the turnover time for a pre-formatted book text to eBook is less than a day.]
