    Mr. Faulhaber:

    I found your name and e-address on the Guidelines for Electronic Scholarly
    Editions page. I have a double-keying project where I expect to be receiving
    materials at a rate of 200,000 pages per month. Do you know of any
    materials that discuss the method of doing proof reading for that quantity
    of pages ? How many readers, sampling rate, etc. The vendor is guaranteeing
    a 99.995 accuracy rate and I need to check it within 30 days for rejection
    or approval.

    Any pointers you can provide will be most appreciated.


    Steven C. Perkins
