Oh God, look what I've gotten myself into.  I'd have to be consistent  
and organized instead of my usual chaotic self :-)  I must say that  
this site: Core Historical Literature of Agriculture http:// 
chla.mannlib.cornell.edu made the documentation easy as their  
librarians did the work.  it is also a great site to mine as there is  
a pulldown menu for each scanned book with illustration pages noted!   
A real time saver.  I'll put a listing for it on the Wiki.

Regarding the old library images, when they are moved over to ccHost  
will they be associated with their submitters.  Can they be?  I  
became involved in this project between the last release and switch  
over to ccHost, so much of my submissions are in that big unsorted
