Updates & Stats

Well. I think I've got both the front group page and the wiki pages updated in terms of libraries underway and completed. If any of these need to be changed, or if I'm missing anything, please let me know. I still need to alphabetize the lists on the front group page, but getting the columns to line up once I move things around is making my brain hurt so I'll tackle that another day.

As of today, we have 41 ongoing projects and 40 completed ones - I really like that the two are very close to parity!

By my count this morning we've cataloged 64,212 Legacy books so far ... that's up from 47,773 at the beginning of September.

I put out a call for submissions for the Libraries of Early America project and have gotten tremendous feedback so far - to say I'm thrilled would be a serious understatement (I can't remember the last time I literally squeaked with joy, but I did that a couple times this week when people emailed me about libraries I didn't know were out there).

Any updates on current projects are always welcome. Any problems?

Thanks for all your help this year in making this project so much fun - let's keep up the good work!

And thanks to you, too, Jeremy. But we still don't get badges, like combiners...(grumble).

Oh, I expect we will, eventually.

Jeremy, I've been meaning to say how good the Libraries of Early America project looks. To your credit, the additional libraries, and all the additional data, are impressive. Congratulations on the favorable response you've gotten - this will be a great resource in the future, and not just for LTers!

And thanks to all of you who continue to plug away on Franklin, Scott, Blixen, etc. etc. (and of course the increasingly staggering Sandburg library). Somebody is looking in. :)
