Progress Update – 9 to 15 July 2016

By Louise Seaward, on 15 July 2016

Hello there.  We’re here again with the latest round-up the pages which have been transcribed over the past week.  A big thanks goes out to everyone who has transcribed this week!

For those who might have missed it, Dr Tim Causer has blogged this week about how he has been using volunteer transcripts in his work on Bentham’s writings on Australia.  Why did Bentham rely upon a letter from an unnamed woman in his argument against convict transportation?

Back to the stats.  16,295 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed, which is an increase of 33 on last week’s total.  Of these transcripts, 15,385 (94%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.
