Progress update, 8 to 14 December 2012

By Tim Causer, on 14 December 2012

Welcome to the progress update for the period 8 to 14 December which—as it tends to be around this time of year!—has been a little quieter than normal. However, a total of 6,866 words (including XML markup) have still been transcribed during the last seven days.

4,736 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially transcribed, which is an increase of eight on this time last week. Of these transcripts, 4,491 (94%) are now complete, which is ten up on last Friday. We are now extremely close to locking our 4,500th transcript!

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

  • Box 2: 351 manuscripts transcribed of 532 (66%)
  • Box 27: 348 of 350 (99%)
  • Box 35: 275 of 439 (62%)
  • Box 50: 90 of 198 (45%)
  • Box 51: 351 of 940 (37%)
  • Box 62: 53 of 565 (9%)
  • Box 70: 240 of 250 (68%)
  • Box 71: 651 of 665 (97%)
  • Box 72: 606 of 664 (91%)
  • Box 73: 151 of 151 (100%)
  • Box 79: 198 of 199 (99%)
  • Box 95: 119 of 147 (80%)
  • Box 96: 526 of 539 (97%)
  • Box 97: 37 of 288 (12%)
  • Box 98: 26 of 499 (5%)
  • Box 100: 110 of 433 (25%)
  • Box 115: 267 of 307 (86%)
  • Box 116: 299 of 864 (34%)
  • Box 139: 38 of 38 (100%)
  • Overall: 58% of the 8,164 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Boxes 70 and 98 were the most heavily transcribed during the last seven days.

As mentioned elsewhere, UCL closes for the holidays soon and I will be away from 22 December 2012 until 7 January 2013 – TB will remain fully available over that period, but my responses to any queries may be slower than usual.

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