Thanks to JJ Ford & William Ulate for their tech savvy analysis!
Bottom line: Incorporating artworks requires collection development policy changes, new metadata requirements, and significant technical development...

Jackie Chapman, Gemini Coordinator:
"SIL has scanned all it can, save for v.29 which is awaiting repair.
MCZ is scanning 17 and 50. Thanks, Joe!
So, we're only missing 13, 14, and 24
MOBOT holds 13 but only part of 24 and none of 14- Randy, can you add 13 and what you have of 24 to your queue [looks like you only hold 24(1)]?
ANSP or USGS to the rescue? Jenna, Cathy, and Bridget - looks like you might have 14 and/or the rest of 24 [24(2)] - can either of your institutions add this to their queue?"
Collection trends, gaps? What do we need most?
How much do we have about...?
volume 1, 1900 = "v.1 (1900)"
Number 10, 1905 = "no.10 (1905)"
Band 1, 1900 = "Bd.1 (1900)"

"Down the rabbit hole with this one...I've attached the enumeration scheme. I LUCKILY found a note from the publisher in our copies. Otherwise, we would seriously be lost. Have a look.
I re-enumerated all the digitized mono seps using a parallel numbering scheme. Bianca, I see that you related all the titles, thanks for this.
v.1, fasc. 1-6 - Harvard BOT has and will scan
v.2, fasc.16 (1900) - Missing fasc.1-15 and 17. Harvard BOT has and will scan
v.3 = t.1 (Flora Uruguaya)
v.4:pt.2 (1901), Missing v.4:pt.1. Harvard BOT has and will scan
v.5 = t.2 (Flora Uruguaya)
v.6 = t.3 (Flora Uruguaya)
v.7 = t.4 (Flora Uruguaya) (not in publisher note)
There is also a second series in which a few more "entregas" are eligible for scanning. Not sure about the cataloging on it but let me know if you want those to be scanned as well."

"Hi, In the Help text it says searching across full texts is not currently supported. Does that imply that it might someday be possible? I'm working on a history of the common names of sucker species, and had hoped to do some searching here to see if I'd missed any sources that could help me pin down when certain names came into use. Disappointing that I can't. Hoping that there will be a way in the future.
PS: Is there, by any chance, a secret beta search page that does allow searching full texts? I promise to keep it quiet!"
