By Tim Causer, on 31 August 2012

Welcome to the progress update for the period 25 to 31 August 2012, during which time fantastic progress has been made.

4,168 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially transcribed, which is an increase of 76 on this time last week. Of these transcripts, 3,949 (94%) are now complete and have been locked. We should, all being well, be able to say this time next week that our 4,000th transcript has been locked.
