Abstract:
Changes planned, requested, in-progress, or one-day hoped for.

To-Do List and Features Requests

2003-2015
Tasks the public can help with:
  1. Listen to Audio files to write abstract, and maybe glean dates or places
  2. Tag Chronology
  3. Add abstracts to items missing abstracts
  4. Add dates to items missing dates
  5. Find OCLC numbers for published works
collections still to process
I'm going through every one of the 3100 old documents (composed of 17,500 individual files) to edit them, update links, add meta-data, improve formatting, look for any old HTML files that didn't get imported in 2003, proofread, and in the case of books, to import fully into the database. This will take through 2015 to complete.
  1. Why does bahai-library.com/author/baha'í return different results from bahai-library.com/author/bahá'í
  2. Merge http://bahai-library.com/hornby_lights_guidance_2 . Do it like http://bahai-library.com/uhj_messages_1963-86_full ?
  3. Bahá'í International Community documents, including adding "NY," BIC doc ID numbers, and links back to bic.org.
  4. Books, and reformat things like momen_scripture_revelation
  5. Compilations of books (BWF, prayers, etc)
  6. http://bahai-library.com/resources/tablets-notes
  7. link remaining content from histories/indextoss and study/indextoss.htm
Brett's list
  1. Mirror (already given permission): https://adibmasumian.com/translations/tablet-abdul-baha-twelfth-imam/ and https://adibmasumian.com/translations/truthfulness-of-jafar/ ; (interlink with http://bahai-library.com/masumian_relator_existence_qaim )
  2. Add our own page-and-paragraph-anchored version of the new SAQ at Some Answered Questions
  3. Fix diacritics in Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Indian Subcontinent
  4. Bring over Messages 1986-2001 (including adding all prefatory material and index, etc.) to here
  5. Proof http://bahai.works/Messages_from_the_Universal_House_of_Justice,_1963-1986 and return changes to http://bahai-library.com/uhj_messages_1963_1986 (including adding the glossary and incorporating the index, etc.) and/or utilize this or this copy as a base.
  6. Add at least those quotations not readily available elsewhere online within the more recent edition of Unrestrained as the Wind and add cross-links between it and the earlier edition.
  7. Obtain text of The Modern Social Religion, see, e.g., this and this and make reference to this statement of 'Abdu'l-Bahá about it.
  8. Integrate indexes and missing table of contents/prefaces/forewords (copyright permitting), as mentioned at http://bahai-library.com/zamir_temp_indexes and stored at http://bahai-library.com/zamir/indexes/ into the Writings collections. Add to hierarchical database system?
  9. Star of the West
    1. (Ideally proof Star of the West, vols. 15-25.)
    2. Port over Star of the West volumes from bahai.works once all of the above-mentioned are fully proofread.
  10. Acquire (at least in PDF form) as possible the remaining Bahá'í World volumes first on Bahai.works, and proof as possible these and other Periodicals such as Bahá'í News/Bahá'í News Letter, World Order, American Bahá'í, and year books as available, and port over to Bahá'í Library as completed

Import William Collins Bibliography of English-Language Works on the Bábí and Bahá'í Faiths 1844-2003. Author has already given permission and has provided a complete database, just awaiting importing. Estimated time: 5-10 hours to migrate data + 10-20 hours to program various user interfaces + 10-15 hours to program contributor interfaces + 5-10 hours to add various security and back-up features necessary for a collaborative system + 10-20 hours for things I don't yet know are needed = 40-75 hours

Add feature to retain archive copy of every incoming file, and then have subsequent edits of that file save the file to a new field. Then add an admin feature to replace new edits with old ones, in case a new edit is incorrect or has lost data. This is especially important for people who edit long files using a browser that truncates them in the text area box. Add second table to database for multiple-editor backup. This will function as follows: anytime a user edits a file that he/she was the most recent editor of, the changes are saved directly to the main database table. But anytime a user edits a file that was last edited by someone else, the old version is written to a backup table and the new changes are saved to the main table. Thus no one can mess up a file without the option of its being restored.

Correct data entry for Reviews collection. Need a separate field for title and author of book being reviewed, or some other consistent formatting.

check web stats for incoming links to old html pages; redirect them.
