POST IN THREAD - any ADMIN can edit this post and delete your post

This thread is for multi volume works which have some volumes catalogued already but are not complete and no one has put their hands up to complete.
If you are interested in either reading another volume as a Solo or starting a group project, just set it up in the new project Launch Pad and ask your MC to update the list. Some of the projects are very long and will need a high level of experience and commitment :D

And if there are some not listed please post here and they will be added.

Hi Helena! Welcome to LibriVox!

Anyone is welcome to adopt any of these projects as either a solo or a group project. However, running a group project requires quite a bit more experience and know-how. And in either case, it would require a lot of dedication!

The first step for you would be to complete the one-minute test. This is not an audition, but more like a sound and tech check, to be sure your recordings have the right settings. Then, we strongly recommend that you participate in at least one group project, so that you have an idea of what kind of time is involved in creating your recordings.

Volume 1 of St. John Chrysostom on First Corinthians came in at about 14 hours of finished recording. Most people spend about 2-3 hours of their time producing one finished hour of recording. This could include previewing and preparing the text, actual recording time (including all the bloopers and outtakes), editing the recording to remove those bloopers, etc. So it's a good idea to work on something smaller and more manageable first, before you jump in to a big project like this. :)

Hi I would like to set up the Great Men and Famous Women Volume 2. Do I just need to set in up in the New Projects Thread. Also would you prefer me to do this after the March clean up so we can get older projects into the catalogue.

Yeah, just post it as a new project since there's nothing to be reused. You may want to point your MC to this thread but we'll get it, usually. ;-)

As for the March Cleanup, well, it would be nice if you could wait a bit longer before setting this up to keep the distractions low. :wink:
Cheers, Ava.

Hi
I'm not clear which of the Rabelais remains to be done. Some seems to be catalogued already.
