    Sweating Out the Words

    CLARIFICATION: A sidebar to Debbie Nathan's February 21 "Sweating Out the Words," about The New Yorker's literary contest and the publishing and informatics industries (converting information to digital form), mentioned a company, netLibrary, and suggested that workers involved in hours' worth of work in its sites in China, India and the Philippines were "ruining their wrists and eyes in the process." netLibrary tells us that it requires letters of attestation and proof of working conditions from vendors it works with, requiring standards applicable in the United States. Neither Nathan nor The Nation visited netLibrary's vendor sites. Further, The Nation has no specific knowledge of poor conditions or injury to any of netLibrary's workers.
