Making use of H-Buddhism

Charles Muller Apr 19, 2012 10:55:49 AM
Colleagues: It seems to me that there are two obvious things that we ought to try to do in relation to the H-Buddhism list: (1) To add new bibliographical items (and hopefully tag them, at least minimally) that come through as a result of queries, and (2) add as much material from the old queries by going through the old logs. I've already begun to do a bit of both, but it would be nice if a few people could share the work in an organized way. Please let me know if you are willing to pitch in. -- Chuck

I am willing to help, but will need some preliminary instruction on what to do exactly. -- Bill

I've gone through a lot of the old logs and gotten most of the NEW BOOKS> for the past few years. Going through all of the old TOCs for journals and edited volumes seems like a lot of work. But I was thinking that at least we should certainly add every single *new* item that comes through, especially in the bibliographical queries. I've been doing this already (and Peter Wyzlic has helped out on this present Theravada/healing thread). What I'm wondering is whether we could set up some kind of rotation so that we could share this task of assimilating biblographical materials that come into the list. For example, some kind of rotation system. Any ideas?

I'm also happy to join some sort of rotation for uploading articles

Thanks Jovan. I'm not exactly sure how we would do it. If we had a few volunteers, I was thinking that we could set up a rotation list, and each time a bibliographical query comes through, one person could be responsible for tracking it until it finishes. Something like that. -- Chuck

Yes, maybe it's possible to do 3 or 6 monthly rotations. If the this was the person in question's only task it wouldn't be too burdensome, I think.
