Jewelry books

I think this is a wonderful idea. In response to wether this
violates copyrights, it is my understanding that copyrights on
published material expire, in how many years I am not certain (50 I
think). Maybe someone out there has the answer to that?

Secondly, when materials are used for educational non-commercial
purposes there may be an exemption to copyrights. Wether this
applies to ‘cyber’ publishing I don’t know.

All the best on your efforts, Tom Tietze

The idea of a jewelry book database or spreadsheet listing the
authors, ISBN’s, titles, publishers and brief summary sounds like
a great idea. I also am a great lover of books, any kind, and
would love to be able to browse a list specifically identifying
jewelry related books that fellow Orchider’s have found. However,
copying the text is a definite infringement on copyright laws -
even for very old books and y’all probably remember my stand on
copying another’s work.

A database list with brief summary (and perhaps the poster’s brief
review) would be a fantastic answer to finding books though.
Including a field to indicate 'for sale or trade" with the owners
email or phone would allow those with duplicates to share. After
that, as previously mentioned, there are several on-line sources
where books can be purchased if you find one of particular
interest.

Charles, I enjoyed your lecture at SF State very much! Benchtricks
was very informative and I can see where tricks like wearing down
the seperating disc fast= too much pressure, is not only a savings
in time and aggravation, but quite a health helpful tip.I can’t
wait to read the books. Can you please send info for me on Ref.
Ind.I’m dying to read about it.

Thanks again

   Please be aware that this project will be done with
integrity. None of us willing to become involved in this has any
intent to steal.

It is more my personal intent to prepare a master list of books
personally owned by others, and owners willing arrange either a
sale, trade, or Library like lend.

Scanning was simply a thought expressed out loud, not an intent to
Pirate.

Greetings,

Such a database is available at Ganoksin.com; It is by no means
complete .:-)…new entries are always welcome!

Being this is the first time I have responded to the group, I hope
I do this correctly.

These two links should help solve some questions.

While I am here, I want to thank you all for the fantastic display
of concern, consideration, and the enormous amount of knowledge
sharing that goes on here. This is a great group of concerned
individuals. I have learned a lot.

Thanks again

though.

I think this is a particularly appealing idea; I often look at the
description of a book in a catalogue and wonder whether I want to
make the investment. It’s often complicated by the fact that
there are usually several to choose from at any one time and the
is fairly limited. Most of the books I purchase that
are technical in nature and/or have good photographs or drawings
are not inexpensive - having it ‘reviewed’ by another reader may
give me just the I need to make a good choice.
