767 page images for CO 60 Vol 10 (in three different sizes) have been added to the collection. These cover the 1861 Despatched from London, January to August. These will now be linked into the transcription documents.
Still to do: rework the processMapBibl template so that it really uses all of the info that's now there (author, publisher, etc. etc.). This should probably be done with regular templates.
This is the complete mapping for copying metadata over from the ContentDM records to our TEI files:
I'm now halfway through the XSLT which will integrate the metadata into the TEI files. Should be done tomorrow.
This is my preliminary mapping:
Spent most of the day manually aligning records between ContentDM and ColDesp, so this is where we're at:
Also wrote to CP with a list of 7 maps that we have, but which are apparently missing from ContentDM.
More progress on matching with ContentDM. I've now generated an XHTML file with two tables, one of candidate matches (186 maps) with links to both ColDesp and ContentDM, for human checking, and one of failed matches (33 maps from ColDesp), with ColDesp links and enough metadata for a manual search. I've manually verified the 186 candidate matches and found that most match; I reported one map apparently missing from ContentDM to CP, and found a dupe in ColDesp.

The Colonial Despatches is an XML database project which is creating a digital archive containing the original correspondence between the British Colonial Office and the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia. The project lives at http://bcgenesis.uvic.ca, and the web application runs on the Pear dev Tomcat. The XML data is managed in SVN at http://revision.tapor.uvic.ca/svn/coldesp/.
