Transcribe Bentham


A Participatory Initiative


Transcription update – 18 August to 14 September 2018

By Louise Seaward, on 14 September 2018

It’s September already and we’re just starting our ninth year of transcribing Bentham!  We owe an enormous thank you to all our volunteers for their transcription efforts.  Let’s see what they’ve been up to lately…

Here are the full statistics for the initiative – as of 14 September 2018.

20,822 manuscript pages have now been transcribed or partially-transcribed. Of these transcripts, 19,968 (95%) have been checked and approved by TB staff.

Over the past four weeks, volunteers have worked on a total of 143 manuscript pages. This means that an average of 36 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!
