Progress update, 21 to 27 July 2012

By Tim Causer, on 27 July 2012

Welcome to the progress update for the period 21 to 27 July 2012, during which we have come extremely close to having our 4,000th manuscript transcribed.

3,994 manuscripts have been transcribed or partially transcribed, up 34 on last week’s total. Of these, 3,759 are now locked and complete, an increase of 31 on this time last week.  We should hit the 4,000th transcript early next week, with a fair wind!

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

  • Box 2: 332 manuscripts transcribed of 532 (62%)
  • Box 27: 347 of 350 (99%)
  • Box 35: 265 of 439 (60%)
  • Box 50: 59 of 92 (64%)
  • Box 51: 87 of 940 (9%)
  • Box 62: 53 of 565 (9%)
  • Box 70: 171 of 250 (48%)
  • Box 71: 649 of 665 (97%)
  • Box 72: 604 of 664 (90%)
  • Box 73: 150 of 150 (100%)
  • Box 79: 86 of 199 (43%)
  • Box 95: 71 of 147 (48%)
  • Box 96: 525 of 539 (97%)
  • Box 97: 30 of 288 (10%)
  • Box 100: 84 of 433 (19%)
  • Box 115: 245 of 307 (79%)
  • Box 116: 198 of 864 (22%)
  • Box 139: 38 of 38 (100%)
  • Overall: 53% of the 7,464 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Box 51 was the most heavily transcribed during the last week, and Box 27 is nigh-on complete.

For those who missed it, you can read more about Jeremy Bentham’s three heads at the Bentham Project blog. I’m glad to say that our office move (mentioned in the blog) is now complete, though my (new) office does like the proverbial bomb has hit it.

Thank you, as ever, to all those who contributed their time and effort during the last seven days. It remains greatly appreciated.
