Archive Statistics

The following statistics are drawn from our current online catalog and so may not represent a complete picture of the archive holdings. Currently the catalog contains 14769 items, or perhaps 75% of the total resources. In addition, the catalog still contains many omissions. That is, in many cases not all contributors are listed for a given resource. This is particularly true for audio resources. Bear in mind also that many resources are associated with multiple languages and thus may be counted multiple times in the tables below. Another issue affecting these statistics is granularity. Some contributors' resources have been cataloged at the box rather than folder level, resulting in less granularity and hence the appearance of "fewer" resources in these tables.
