5,000 up!

By Tim Causer, on 4 February 2013

We are delighted to say, that following the transcription of manuscript JB/098/037/002 (thanks to Jan Copes for this one), 5,000 often complex and difficult to decipher manuscripts have now been worked on by Transcribe Bentham volunteers. This is a truly magnificent achievement by Transcribe Bentham participants, who in two and-a-half years have transcribed an estimated 2.5 million words, including XML mark-up of their work and who, on average, transcribe more manuscripts each week than could be reasonably expected of a full-time member of staff.

Needless to say, everyone at Transcribe Bentham and the Bentham Project are hugely grateful to each person who has participated so far (an alphabetical list of whom follows at the end of this post). Our special thanks also go to our wonderful regular transcribers who routinely produce such high-quality work for the project. The work of current, present, and future volunteer transcribers will, we hope, also be greatly appreciated by anyone who comes to use UCL’s digital Bentham Papers repository, or future volumes of The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham, endeavours to which these transcripts will contribute.

If you would like to participate in Transcribe Bentham and help widen access to the Bentham Papers, you can sign up for a volunteer account at the Transcription Desk, or contact transcribe.bentham@ucl.ac.uk.

Here’s to the next 5,000 transcripts, and beyond!
