Berzin Archives Trimonthly Report: March through May 2012

From my desk in Berlin
From my desk in Berlin

Through your kind support during the second three months of our Global Giving campaign, we have continued making great progress with the Berzin Archives web site www.berzinarchives.com. We have prepared and published online a large amount of new material in each of our 12 currently available language sections. We have also continued work on our upcoming Italian, Vietnamese and Tibetan sections. In addition, we have started preparing a Turkish section. All of this has been accomplished through the efforts of our talented staff of 80 dedicated men and women, working part-time for us all around the world – 27 salaried and 53 volunteers.

During these last three months, our technical team has constructed the Italian and Vietnamese sections in our content management system. As soon as we have completed a sufficient number of articles in these languages and our web developer has made the final check, we will be ready to make these sections go live on the web site.

On the technical side, our web developer has been writing the code for automating the generation and management of siblings for our articles and audio files. Siblings are second copies of items on the web site, appearing elsewhere in the menu structure. They make it easier to find articles and audio files when browsing through the site. In the 14 language sections presently managed in our system, the 3,034 articles and 866 audio files have 1,313 siblings. When completed, this latest innovation will greatly enhance the speed and efficiency of our system’s publishing process – a valuable improvement as we continue to add new material to the web site nearly every day.

You can find the statistics for these last three months in the attached document. Thank you once more for your continuing support, helping to make all of this possible. But imagine how much more we could accomplish if we could offer full-time employment and a career to some of our key salaried staff presently working only part time. With the help of people like you, we can make this dream come true and bring even more of the wisdom of Tibet to the world.
