section 7 is PL OK!

can you upload 8 again, it will not play, and says there is an error.

Both of them are missing the 128kb in the url, that can be fixed at catalogueing, but try to remember it for future sections :)

Sorry I am behind on pling etc. I was away for a few days and then got a nasty flu. I plan on catching up this coming week, thanks for your patience!

thank you for being so vigilant, Tiffany :) I made a note in the MW, so I don't forget to change the name.

I have uploaded again. Unfortunately, the recording did not open in Audacity as a recent, so I was unable to save again with the missing information. The recording plays for me. Let me know if there's a problem.

Great! Thanks for your patience! In a way I regret reading something that requires more flexibility of voice than I now have. May look at George Eliot next.
By the way, I belong to a private library in Newcastle which has a collection of rare old books. Does the book have to be available online to be recorded?
Thanks

8 is PL OK.

This was a few years ago, so I may be wrong, but once I was told you have to send a picture of the page that has the copyright info on it so that an MC can confirm it is a PD copy.

Mmm. Thanks. I doubt whether a book published in the 18th or early 19th century has any copyright information printed on it. I will check with the library staff on copyright restrictions for rare early volumes.

probably not all, but I have seen some old books already and they often have a printing date in Latin numerals on the title page. It doesn't say copyright in our modern sense, but what we actually want is the publishing date, and this fits then.

Yes if you could at least scan the page with the publishing date, that would be helpful. But then again, the DPL also needs the book in case they want to check against the text. So the best thing would be to scan the whole book and upload it to archive, that way we're totally sure. Maybe libraries scan their old books nowadays, so maybe there is such a service in your library as well.

In fact, before you scan anything, check on archive.org, whether the book is not already online ;) I am always surprised by how much I find there. So many gems :9:

Sorry. Didn't write Ready for PL on Magic Window, and now I can't get back on.
