We recently made some good changes to the Silmarillion citation system and are now (re)turning to Unfinished Tales. I’ve created a YouTube channel and we’re going to livestream our first meeting.

Citation systems are very much at the core of what we’re doing and they’re needed, in particular, for Search Tolkien. The next work we want to include in the search engine is Unfinished Tales and that means making more progress on a citation system for it. After an initial pass, I decided there were a bunch of things I wanted to discuss with others and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a livestream.

So first of all, the Digital Tolkien Project now has a YouTube channel which you should visit and subscribe to! In the future I plan to do a whole series of short-form videos that cover what I’ve been talking about in conference presentations over the years.

But in the short term, there’s a scheduled livestream on April 16th at 10AM EDT which you can go set a reminder for now.

Hope to see some of you there! If you can’t make it, the video will be available afterwards.
