Progress Update – 25 to 31 March 2017

By Louise Seaward, on 31 March 2017

Hello and welcome to this week’s update from Transcribe Bentham.  The volunteers have been busy over the past week and we are grateful, as ever, for their efforts.

There is some exciting news this week – our volunteers have managed to completely transcribe the manuscripts in Box 120! The papers in this box explain some of Bentham’s ideas for his Panopticon prison, and demonstrate his anger when these plans did not come to fruition.  Thanks for everyone who contributed to the transcription of this box – especially the user ohsoldgirl who undertook the bulk of the work.

Back to the stats.  17,984 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 79 on last week’s total.  Of these transcripts, 17,009 (94%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.
