(1) Donation of Linux Books to MakeLehighValley
When Dann Washko left Bethlehem, he gave away a lot of his computer
books. I took most of them with the intention of starting a library
for the lvlug and the Linux sig of that other local computer users
That never really came to fruition, so I've decided to donate most of
those books to the MakeLehighValley organization that is forming.
(I've tried to write to Dann just to make sure he has no objection--I
sent an email to dann at thelinuxlink.net this weekend.)
(2) Scanner for ISBN Bar Codes
Before I actually turn the books over, I'd like to make a list of them
to put on WikiLearn or elsewhere on the Internet. Does anyone here
have access to one of those (portable) bar code scanners that can read
the ISBN codes on (modern) books?
I'd like to find one to borrow, or find someone that's willing to scan
in about 3 cartons of books.
I also don't know much about them--I presume that to get the actual book
information (like author, title, ...), there is another program
involved that has to access the Internet?
If I don't get anywhere here, I'll go to the next library book sale
(Bethlehem has one in late June), and find and talk to one of the
people using a scanner like that.
