Conder Concordance Prototype: I've put together a prototype search form which will accept search words you find on a token face or edge, identify tokens that have those words, and identify pages in D&H where these tokens can be found to finalize identification. This concordance has a long way to go before it is particularly useful ... right now there is only information from about 60 tokens, starting from Bedfordshire DH1 (page 1 of 1996 DH), loaded in the database. I'm looking for volunteers to help with the data entry into a simple Excel spreadsheet ... the 7000 or so tokens to go could be "easily" handled by 35 people doing 200 each ... except for maybe the mules. I'm also thinking that this prototype could easily be expanded to index token appearances in Bell and in the 2004 DH, and possibly include links to images in The Conder Cabinet where they are available.
