Berzin Archives Trimonthly Report: December 2011 through February 2012
By Dr. Alexander Berzin - Author and Managing Director
From my desk in Berlin
Through your kind support during the first three months of our GlobalGiving campaign, we have made great progress with the Berzin Archives website www.berzinarchives.com, both in its contents and its number of visits. In addition to preparing and publishing online further material in each of our 12 language sections currently online, we have continued work on our future Italian and Vietnamese sections. Most excitingly, we have begun work on a colloquial Tibetan section. This will not only make our material available to the Tibetan community, but will help with His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s wish to preserve the Tibetan language and culture among the Tibetans themselves. We have also been expanding our audio sections, and have started work on adding a video section as well.
On the technical side, our web developer, Christian Steinert, has upgraded and further simplified the code for the content management system that handles and produces the web site. Our system manages nearly 20,000 items in order to enable our 3,850 individual articles and audio files to reach the world. He has also been preparing the system to handle video material.
You can find the statistics for these three months in the attached document. Thank you once more for your continuing support, making all this possible.
