Help with converting from PDF to Word or text? I found a 2002 pathfinder from MPOW online elsewhere and I'm trying to update it. No one here has the file. When I open the PDF with Word, Word says it has converted it but most of the file has been converted into page images. Can anyone help? I need something editable.

Further to the EBL / Ebrary books-missing-bits thread: here is a screenshot of an EBL book from Duke UP that was in our PDA catalogue (now removed so that it's not accidentally purchased). It says that Duke doesn't hold electronic rights to the material, but apparently EBL sees fit to sell it anyway.
When punchy librarians come up with session titles for upcoming drop-in workshops? You end up with Buzzfeed style session titles: "15 ways to get to full text in your twenties -- WITHOUT PAYING A CENT" or "48 Reference works you'll NEVER BELIEVE THEY WROTE (number 12 will haunt your sleep)"
