The wall is going up

The server room is slowly starting to take shape. The wall is being created, and the site team has already cleared the space. It is pretty dark in there, so please excuse the quality of the picture.

1500 Transcripts in DSpace

Today, we finally crossed the 1500 mark!!! There are now 1502 transcripts in DSpace, available for Rigpa researchers to search online. I hope we can increase the number of available transcripts more and more!!!

The concrete is down

The concrete floor in the Lerab Ling workshop is done, so the construction of the wall between workshop and server room can begin. The Lerab Ling site team is vacating the future server room area today. I do wonder though if we will ever see Spring here.
