By Louise Seaward, on 5 January 2018

Happy New Year from everyone at the Bentham Project!  Transcribe Bentham continues into another year and we are happy to have so many diligent volunteers working with us.  A big festive thank you to everyone who has been transcribing during the past month.

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 5 January 2018.

19,625 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 18,886 (96%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 153 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 38 pages have been transcribed each week during the past month.

Check out the Benthamometer for more information on how much has been transcribed from each box of Bentham’s papers!
