I was told they would still continue scanning things from the vault now that their major funding is over but it would be at a much much slower pace.

I was curious in helping out with this but right now I am very busy working on my own scanning projects ATM and really cannot get to this right now. But curious approximately or exactly around how many links left do we have to mirror and look over now from this posting?

Perhaps Sibley's head librarian would be open to scan-on-demand? Then I could mirror my own requests.

BTW I'm a former member of WIMA and Sibley projects. :-)

My colleagues at UR outside of Sibley have not chosen to systematically digitize their PD works. Much of that material, given the nature of their collection, is available through Google Books. There are still any number of things in Sibley's collections that we were not able to get to as part of the grant-funded digitization projects, primarily books and treatises. We still can do them on an as needed basis, assuming they aren't available digitally elsewhere.

Then to whom may I send my few scanning requests? I'll welcome a reply such as "already scanned at http://etc ". :-)
