By Tim Causer, on 24 January 2014

Welcome to the progress update for the period 18 to 24 January 2014, during which time further steady progress has been made by Transcribe Bentham volunteers. 10,070 words were transcribed this week, along with a further 4,656 words of TEI XML.

6,824 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 35 upon last week’s total. 6,524 of these transcripts are now complete and locked after having undergone our quality-control process, up 32 on this time last week.

The more detailed state of progress is as follows:

We are also delighted to say that the digitisation of the British Library’s Bentham manuscripts is now underway, and we look forward to uploading this material and sharing it with you in the near future.

As always, thank you to everyone who has given their time and effort to Transcribe Bentham during the last seven days. It remains greatly appreciated by us all.
