I've just posted an update on the blog about some of the recent completions (including Waugh, which I realized I never mentioned at the end of 2011, which is terrible of me!). Houdini, Douglass, McCullers and Waugh are mentioned, as well as a small one I did yesterday afternoon (Godbert and Sarah Godbertson).

With the new admin tool we've got for MARC-importing, there's a bunch of potential ones that would should now be able to add fairly easily (the imported ones still require quite a bit of working with, but it definitely speeds up the process). So if there are some out there that you'd like to see done first (and/or would be willing to help work with), please let me know. I'll be going back through the threads to find some suggestions, as well.

In other LLs news, a book from Washington's library is up for grabs this month!

Would love to hear how other projects, &c. are going, and if I (or anyone else) can be of help with any of them!

What new tool?

Edited: Apr 11, 2012, 12:09pm Top

The new back-end tool that lets me import MARC files directly.

ETA: I added the word "admin" to the original post to make this clearer, sorry.

I figured as much. MARC records have been poof for us users for a very long time. Which bugs me. .... :D

Not sure what you mean - are you in need of MARC records batch-imported to your account?

Apr 11, 2012, 12:54pm Top

No, but thanks anyway. I'm talking about the MARC records link at the bottom of each work page, which used to provide the MARC record, and then went down for maintenance about 2? years ago.

Ah - yes, different animal entirely.

I think they're the same animal. The difference is you have access to the herd, and we don't have access to the tiniest beast.

This particular admin tool to batch-import MARC records is not the same thing as what you're referring to. Sorry.

Great updates! I have a LL I've been working on quietly by myself for a while and may be nearly ready to go up. It's an oldie!

Apr 12, 2012, 12:31pm Top

Cool! :-)

The GW book I mentioned in #1 sold for $101,575. Previous auction prices for this book (I'm sure there are more than these): it sold in 1892 at $290 and 1891 at $130. I've updated the book record to reflect this latest sale.
