I know that Elizabby has submitted texts to PG before. I don't know who else, or how it's done.

Old thread: How to Make a Project Gutenberg E-Book

Archive is much easier.

I sent in an online interlibrary request using my local library website. Librarian says they can access LSU books. Let's see what happens.

Update on my Demian project: I got the hardcover book from the library, Gutenberg has accepted the copyright page, I read the FAQ's and I am now teaching myself the process of scanning it in with my Epson Perfection 4490 Scanner and ABBY OCR software. This experience gives me a whole new appreciation of the Gutenberg Project. WOW! The PG represents a lot of volunteer effort!

I am recording a chapter as I correct the OCR errors, proofing as I go along. When Gutenberg accepts and uploads the book, my recordings should be ready to upload as well.

So true!

That's sort of how I got started here, thinking that reading aloud would be a great way of spotting errors. Turns out my vocal cords are much more forgiving than eyes and brain. You've got a hard project on your hands, Michele! Glad it's coming along so well, though.
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!
