Network Book Online Database Project
As readers of Paradigm Explorer will know, we carry reviews of over 200 books a
year, mostly by David Lorimer as editor. A database kept in Scotland between 1996 and 2014 contained over 5,000 entries. At present, there is no way of searching for past book reviews, so we are planning to create a searchable database of historic reviews as a new form of outreach that will be available as a member benefit.
Our Webmaster Richard Irwin has identified a suitable WordPress Plug-in, and we would like to start populating this over the next few months, working backwards and uploading reviews more than six months old so as not to prejudice Paradigm Explorer subscribers. We would greatly appreciate your support for this.
A related new initiative is the podcast of book reviews, Towards a New Renaissance Bookcast.
