Welcome along to the progress update for the period 21 to 27 June 2014, which has been another mammoth week of transcription – the second busiest week, in fact, in TB history! Thank you to all who’ve contributed this week, and for continuing to bear with us while we work through our backlog of transcripts – we’re getting there.
9,555 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 227 on last week’s total. Of these transcripts, 8,639 (90%) are now locked after being checked by TB editors. The completion percentage should increase in the next couple of weeks when we catch up with transcripts which need to be checked.
The more detailed state of progress is as follows:
|Box||No. of manuscripts worked on||No. of manuscripts in box||Completion|
|Add MSS 537||544||744||73%|
|Add MSS 538||303||858||35%|
|Add MSS 539||376||948||39%|
At the current rate of transcription, the 10,000th transcript should be worked on in the next two or three weeks. We never imagined, when first conceiving of TB, that this figure would be reached so soon. It will certainly be a cause for celebration!
Thank you, as always, to everyone who has contributed to TB during the past seven days. It is as greatly appreciated as ever.
