I am wondering if it would be possible to share some of those materials
with the Las Vegas community? Would the college let schools with Deaf
children borrow or use the books and software? I have received several
requests for free materials from groups in Nevada.....

Take them out, no, but you gave me an idea. I will work with the library
that seems to love me so much about something like this. The language lab
could do it but they use student helpers who change all the time so are not
concistent service-wise, but the library, hmmmm. Thanks a lot Val, I will
use part of my spring break to work on how to implement such an idea.

Thanks James - this means a lot - particularly because the college only
offers SignWriting instruction "occasionally" - and it seems a waste to let
the materials not "spread" to the community.
The reason that I am printing and collating and binding every book myself
is because I am also donating lots of materials to other schools, such as
Albuquerque...and those donations naturally have taken funds. And so, I
have chosen to do this, with the hopes that it will benefit deaf education
in the long run.
