Progress update, 16 to 22 August 2014

By Tim Causer, on 23 August 2014

Welcome along to the progress update for the period 16 to 22 August, which is both slightly late and truncated owing to our attendance at the 2014 International Society for Utilitarian Studies conference in Yokohama. Many apologies for the inconvenience.

We are delighted to say that transcription has continued at a fantastic rate, with 10,582 manuscripts now transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 167 on this time last week. This is tremendous work by TB volunteers, and ISUS delegates repeatedly told us how amazed they were by this progress. We will continue to spread the word in the coming days, as we give presentations on TB and tranScriptorium at universities in Tokyo.

Thanks you, as ever, to everyone who has given their time so generously to TB during the last seven days. We continue to work hard to clear the backlog of submitted transcripts, and hope you won’t mind bearing with us a little longer.
