Index pages for EB1911 available[edit]

Hello! I was wondering if you knew that there were Indexes available for the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica? I noticed that you were transcribing text directly to the Mainspace page for each entry, and thought to mention that it might be easier to proofread/add text via the Index pages. For example, your entry for "Alpes Maritimes" can be found in the Volume I Index at page 766 (actual page 723). Once you have proofread the text for a particular entry, you can then set up the Mainspace page using transclusion notation (see example). It is necessary, however, to "section" the entry on the Index page. An example of how that is done can be found here (where you will note ## "Advice" ##). Hope this can be helpful, Londonjackbooks (talk) 18:03, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Sonja, your tips were really helpful.Clarice Reis (talk) 00:47, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I hope so :) I also wanted to add that I changed three Mainspace pages that you created ("Allegri, Gregorio", "Allegro", and "Alleine, Joseph"), but your proofreading did not go to waste; I merely copy/pasted your work onto the corresponding Index:page and then transcluded the info. after fixing some quotation marks and removing end-of-line spaces from the text. Londonjackbooks (talk) 02:58, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
No problem. Just a small correction, I did not create "Allegro". Regards, Clarice Reis (talk) 03:32, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
You're right! It was stuck in the middle, and I assumed! :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 11:11, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget (I'm assuming again) that once you have gone over a complete Index page sufficiently, you can mark it as having been Proofread. Londonjackbooks (talk) 15:03, 12 November 2011 (UTC)


Hyphenation in the shoulder headings looks very out of place to me. It is not necessary, and it is eliminated from the body text. Thank you for your efforts on the Britannica articles. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 16:28, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Wikisource User Group[edit]

Wikisource, the free digital library is moving towards better implementation of book management, proofreading and uploading. All language communities are very important in Wikisource. We would like to propose a Wikisource User Group, which would be a loose, volunteer organization to facilitate outreach and foster technical development, join if you feel like helping out. This would also give a better way to share and improve the tools used in the local Wikisources. You are invited to join the mailing list 'wikisource-l' (English), the IRC channel #wikisource, the facebook page or the Wikisource twitter. As a part of the Google Summer of Code 2013, there are four projects related to Wikisource. To get the best results out of these projects, we would like your comments about them. The projects are listed at Wikisource across projects. You can find the midpoint report for developmental work done during the IEG on Wikisource here.
