The Colonial Despatches project would like to welcome our two new team members, Alison Malis (doing a Directed Reading in the History Department) and Brigitte Dreger-Smylie (Directed Reading/Professional Writing Program). We also welcome back Theo Biggs, previously doing Directed Reading but now as a workstudy student, entering his third year with us. There should be lots of activity over the coming semester!
Stats for complete, incomplete and unavailable bios were being incorrectly calculated following our change to the use of persName/@type recently. Reported by KSW, and now fixed.
The links from schedules not reliably connected with a document id were failing with an inscrutable error, as was any URL which didn't actually point at a document (where a sort of 404 would be expected). I've now fixed that, so that a cleaner "not found" document appears, and schedules with plausible target documents (based on despatch numbers and dates) actually jump to the first plausible document.
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/.
