If you live in the Ballard area, or are interested in working at our location, that is also an option. You do not need to have a computer - you can use ours.
We have about 270 Word documents that are newsletters. Most of these newsletters tell about new books we have in our collection. We'd like to make sure we know when a book was mentioned, so we want to go through the newsletters and make a list of book mentions.
If you would be willing to do this, we would send you a directory with this document. The size is about 300 Megabytes.
Most of the newsletters mention about five books. Some are just reminders, and don't mention any books.
You would open each file, look through it to see if it contains a section on new material - the list of a few books. If so, copy that list of material into the document where we will list the books have that been mentioned.
You need to have either Microsoft Word on your computer, or a program that can read Word files, and be able to copy and paste. Please be a careful reader, attentive to detail.
As time goes on, the number of files may drop, as other volunteers go through the files.
