Ok I was playing around with this and found that if I put both 'Children' and 'science', I come up with this:

Children science. So it actually does work.

I wonder if anyone knows this. :hmm:

Esther :D

Well, I certainly didn't. Do we have 'search tips' on the Wiki? Oh, strike that - if it is there, we wouldn't be able to find it anyway. :lol: The Wiki is even less searchable than the catalogue.

Maybe it can be added to the advanced search page as "Search Tips". :shock:

Right under these other links:

How were the titles listed before there was a searchable catalog and how many titles were in it before that catalog went into place? Does anyone know?

I can't answer the first question, but I estimate (based on the fact that the first post here was Jan 3, 2007) that there were 388 projects in the catalog at that time. That's adding the projects cataloged from inception through December 2006.

I'm going to un-sticky this. It's way old news. :lol:

First of all, the books were listed out like this:

http://web.archive.org/web/20051028022130/http://librivox.org/librivox-catalogue/

That page then grew to be a list of links to static pages for each area:

http://web.archive.org/web/20061205102005/http://librivox.org/librivox-catalogue/

And we got the searchable catalogue, as Tricia says, in early 2007 -- here's what it looked like then:

http://web.archive.org/web/20070128123445/http://librivox.org/newcatalog/

I have the vaguest memory of the work behind the scenes to transfer the already-done books into this catalogue, late 2006. Probably means I didn't do any of it. :lol:

I remember it. The admins put out a call for people to help with data entry to transfer everything then in the catalogue to the new database.
