A Good Year

2011 was a good year for Project Runeberg, our 19th since we started in December 1992. To our collection of free electronic editions of Scandinavian literature, 65,900 pages were added, 95,900 pages were indexed by chapter, and 22,000 pages were proofread, making 2011 our third most productive year ever. For our history, see this timeline.

The biggest milestone was the completion on October 7 of the proofreading of Salmonsens konversationsleksikon (26 volumes, 1915-1930), a Danish encyclopedia which was scanned in 2004-2008. (See below.)
