Progress update, 1 to 7 June 2013

By Tim Causer, on 7 June 2013

Welcome to the progress update for the period 1 to 7 June 2013, during which time further steady progress has been made by TB volunteers. 7,128 words of Bentham text were transcribed this week, plus another 3,050 words of TEI XML. Yesterday was the 181st anniversary of Bentham’s death in 1832, and he would be delighted to see that his works were still of such interest.

5,653 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 17 on last week’s total. Of these transcripts, 5,368 (94.9%) have met the required standards and have been locked, up 18 on last week’s total.

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:
