That would be wonderful! Just know that you're in for a lot of work. Taking pictures of each page is less work than scanning, and not as hard on the book, but you'll have to have a steady hand. It's harder to get a crisp, clear image that way. What we'd need are individual images of each page (rather than the double page spread). Then you'll put all the images (in order, of course) into a PDF document and upload that document to archive.org. If you need help getting the proper format, I might be able to help with that, but that's downstream a ways.elsieselwyn wrote: ↑April 28th, 2019, 9:03 pmHi! So I'm a undergraduate student at a state school in Ohio so I can request books through OhioLINK, a system of interlibrary loan among Ohio universities for students. I looked through OhioLINK and there is an edition of Love-Slaves published in 1923. I requested it and it should be mailed to the nearest library near me (I don't know how long it would take, but it should be fairly efficient ~a couple weeks most likely). I can then scan it (or maybe just take pictures of the pages if it’s very fragile so I don’t damage it while scanning) and upload the images wherever you want me to. Would that work? It would save you the trouble of writing to other libraries.mightyfelix wrote: ↑April 28th, 2019, 4:06 pmhttps://www.worldcat.org/title/love-slaves/oclc/814423571?referer=di&ht=edition&fbclid=IwAR0BtqsZpPbkY5fvK_b3EZGtS85mV6OmAUt2KWC18lmh97R67b7zrcTKHas
I'm thinking of writing to some of these universities in the list, who have the 1923 edition, and asking if they have an electronic format, or would be willing to scan the book and make the scan available. I'm not sure what kind of a reception I'd get to such a request, though. I do have a friend who works at a university library (not one of these), and I've asked her advice on how to phrase my request.
If you're still willing to try, I'm sure we'd all be very grateful! Let us know how things go.
(I just thought of it, but the library where you pick up the book may have a machine or something designed for taking pictures or scanning books, without too much damage. You might ask them about it.)
