The archive of Liberty is growing steadily. I passed the 1000-page mark today, which is about 1/3 of the run, in terms of actual pages; about 1/4 in terms of difficulty of scanning the material; and about 1/2 of the way in terms of the actual content of the paper. The response has been very encouraging. Wendy McElroy has offered her Index To Liberty as a means of wading into the archive in a more systematic manner, and it looks like we will be incorporating that index into the archive as it becomes more than just a pile of pdfs. I would encourage those who want to keep more thoroughly in touch with the progress of the archive to keep an eye on my Travelling in Liberty blog, and, once again, those who wish to participate in the project, even if just to kibitz, should get in touch with me, as I hope to launch the all-archivists list yet this evening.
