Hi Margaret, Thank you,
Knowledge is not needed just checking that the data I have typed in matches the catalogue. I have left dates undefined where it is not clear that it is new line, although I think all the 2006 dates are confirmed.
Some time the errors are obvious as someone told me this morning, four items were listed as limited editions but were in fact unlimited (corrected).
Other errors could be similar choice of category but most likely, wrong designer, incorrect edition quantity.
It is a task that does need access to the original catalogues, I am mostly working from contributed scans and can pass those on to a proofreader. The proofreading needs to work backwards as that should be easiest to ensure comprehensive coverage before proofing. I have some work to do to complete 2005 yet. I am also getting other items submitted but it makes sense to get as much catalogue data in first and then follow up with photographs of the weights, glassware etc. This will make it much easier to identify the material that appear in none of the Caithness catalogues, nor in Charlton etc.
Overall it is looking to be an exciting project and there is probably less than a tenth of the production on-line so far.
