Hi Andrea,

Great question.

Uncorrected proofs are prepublication copies that are not the finished  
item. These copies will not necessarily be the same book that will  
eventually be published and released. They are marked "for review" and  
"not for sale" and in my mind shouldn't be cataloged and presented to  
the public.

We do not catalog them into the Minerva system if that helps.
