Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 12, Jan. 20, 1880 by Various ( - ).
Harper's Young People was an illustrated weekly publication for children containing delightful serialized stories, short stories, fiction and nonfiction, poetry, craft projects and more. This 12th issue of the serial, published on January 20, 1880, features stories of narrow escapes and rescues, new friendships, enchanted timepieces, arctic wildlife, archaeological discoveries, an astronomy lesson, and a picturesque sail down the Nile river. This serial was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/harpers-young-people-vol-01-issue-12/

  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28313
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Standard

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:

    START of recording (Intro)
    • "Section [number] of Harper's Young People, Volume 1, Issue 12, January 20, 1880. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Harper's Young People, Volume 1, Issue 12, January 20, 1880. [Section title]" (If the section you're reading contains more than one story, please read the story titles as you read each story.)

    END of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Section [number]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Harper's Young People, Volume 1, Issue 12, January 20, 1880."

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

    Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    hyp012_##_various_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number[/b] (e.g. hyp012_##_various_128kb.mp3)
  9. ID3 V2 tags
    Please ignore all ID3 tags, they will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
  10. Uploading
    Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader

OK, you're set up, and I've added Jordan as DPL. Maybe a bit presumptuous on my part, but he said he'd see us all on the next issue . . . :D

Thanks MaryAnn! I was presuming the same thing when I left out the "~" in the topic title. :) If he doesn't check in I'll send him a PM. I'll get to work on filling in the MW. And another Harper's Young People is off and running! :clap:

MaryAnn--

I updated the summary and wanted to point it out to you since I am thinking that there is somewhere behind the scenes that it would need to change as well?

Also, I think we're ready to go to Reader's Wanted as the MW is set and I've PM'd Jordan regarding PLing and we have our first volunteer already!

Thank you.

Jill :)

Alcohol and Maths don't mix. So never drink and derive.
