Title: BULB LOG INDEX ONLINE !
Post by: Maggi Young on September 26, 2007, 07:47:07 PM
Hurrah! Great news for all you folks out there who have been pining for an Index to the Bulb Log :
 There IS one: It's ONLINE!

Updated  January 2017

 See Here: http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/index.pdf (http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/index.pdf)
This is an Index to the Logs of  2003 to 2016. It has been created by Len Rhind of Canada, who has done this as a kindness to us all and in a format which Fast Fred has been able to put on the website and who is in receipt of the BD's everlasting thanks! And mine! Huge thanks, Len, you are a superstar for this!

I find that setting the pdf pages to be viewed at 75% makes them fit my monitor page without scrolling and I can read the print at that size, but it is so easy to enlarge the size to enable easier reading with some scrolling.  Len has even managed to iron out  all (most ?) of Ian's spelling hiccups that have escaped my tired eyes... bless you for that, too, Len!

Just had a question from Mark and I am able to point him in the direction of Logs 1/06, 36/05, 21/06 and 27/07 .....just like that! Bliss! The numbers refer to logs, not dates, so 1/06 is the first log of 2006 and so on.

Thank you so much to all concerned.  From a Southern Hemisphere point of view, it will save having to guess  what month bulbs are mentioned. We can go straight to the bulb you wish to know about.  Particularly useful at this time of the year.

Well done.

Yes, Susan, I see the benefit it in that, right away.
 Also, if references are shown for a particualr time in the years covered by the index, it is always worth looking at the same logs of the earliest year to see what might be there.

I'm glad the index has been well received and will be of use to some of you. It was a huge task, indeed, and took over 40 hours to do. But I think it was worth it. I plan to send in an updated version at the end of each month, including a pocket version for those who want to print it on two sides of their paper, so check the upload link regularly to stay current.
Cheer all,
Len

Glad you are all liking the Index, Len has been at it again and not only is there an updated version now on line but also a printer friendly version.

[attachthumb=1]

Len has formatted it to print out as a neat A5 booklet.

[attachthumb=2]

If your printer has does double sided printing set it to 'flip on short edge' if not print it one page at a time turning the page over end for end and reinserting it into your printer to get a perfect booklet.

FANTASTIC.

I am a bit late on this topic, sorry.  Len, Ian thank you so much for the great job of the Bulb Log and its index.  The bulb log is great to peruse at this cold, rather bleak time of the year. One can dream of a beautiful Spring.

Best holiday wishes to all

Dear BulbLoggers, apologies to you all for the late arrival to the website of  Len's completed 2003 to 2007 Bulb Log Index. Len had this ready for you at the end of last year but events seem to have conspired against us getting to you yet. We hope it will soon be on the website by the Bulb Log but for those of you who are absolutely desperate, please email me : maggi AT bulblog.co.uk ( leaving out gaps and adding @, of course) and I will send to you the indices prepared by very kind Len Rhind for our convenience.

Canadian equivalent of a Knighthood

Order of Canada deserved. Many thanks Len.

When I first discovered Ian's Log I started at the beginning and read a few. The next time I would forget where I left off and start over again.  A bit frustrating but I would spend as much time re-reading as I did the first time - always a pleasure as the hours passed by.

The best possible gift for the New Year has just arrived from Canada -  Len Rhind has completed another full index of the Bulb Log.   Len has been generous enough to compile the index and share it with us all - a marvelous "gift" for which we are immensely grateful.
An invaluable resource to go alongside  the Bulb Log from 2003 to 2013.

Len Rhind has been providing the Index to the Bulb Log for all these years and it is such a useful tool for which Ian is extremely grateful - and I am too!

The link in the previous post is to an index to the Bulb Log from 2003 to 2014, kindly  compiled by Len Rhind
- however, should you wish to make a search for something more recent - it is possible to use a "Google" search to this end by typing in the subject and  Bulb  Log  or Ian Young  to find great results.

This works with adding SRGC to your subject for a google search too - for website and forum results

We are once again indebted to Len Rhind in Canada who has once more provided an update to the Bulb Log Index. Thank you, Len!


 Note from Len :

Hi,
Happy New Year.

Here is the new bulb log index for everyone.

There are a few changes to this one:
   Each subject heading now has general articles listed under it first and then the specific articles listed next. I thought this may help finding the specific items easier.
   The Erythroniums in Cultivation chapters have their own alphabetical heading.
   References to Video Supplements are also listed with their own alphabetical heading.

I hope these help and it's all of some use to you.


Cheers,
Len

Last week we received a new, updated Bulb Log Index from the wonderful Len Rhind in Canada. This is one of the  features  for which I rely on Fred Admin to get loaded to the Bulb Log pages.
Sadly, before I was able to send it to Fred for loading to the site, my email packed up  - I only got connected again yesterday and managed to get the Index sent through to Fred last evening -early today, of course,  Fred has got  it loaded for everyone to use - so my thanks are due not only to Len for his  continued service to readers of the Bulb Log for his index update but also to Fred for sorting out the new  index to the site.
As for myself, if I'd been quicker off the mark today - and not lazing around on a cold damp day - this excellent news would have been brought to you much sooner !
Sorry, Len  that's my fault!  Thank you so much for your  efforts - I hope you know how delighted Ian is with your help in this matter - it is a source of pleasure and wonder to him that you do this  work so well to help others.  Thank you!

So - a reminder - the updated Bulb Log Index may be downloaded here : http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/index.pdf (http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/index.pdf)

 Ian Young was  delighted when he  was  contacted   by  Kelly  Jones  from Washington State in  America  expressing  a willingness  to take  on the  indexing  of the  Bulb Log after  Len Rhind had to  give  up the job.  Kelly  has made  time  in her  life  to  be have working  hard  on  the  Index, reworking  several areas and  now  presents, to our  great  delight and  gratitude, a  New  Bulb Log Index, complete  from 2003 to 2019 - it's  a wonderful addition to the  Bulb Log  "family " and  Kelly  deserves  tremendous thanks  for  this  labour  of  love!   Three cheers  for  Kelly and the  Bulb Log  Index!!

A year ago the great news for the  Bulb Log followers was that Kelly Jones had agreed to index the 2020 logs.
 
And indeed, that busy lady has been as good as her  word- in spite  of tremendous pressure on her time - the latest Bulb Log Index, complete from 2003 to 2021 is available here: https://www.srgc.net/filessub/general/BulbLogIndex.pdf
There  will be  a great many  of  us  who are deeply grateful to Kelly for  her  efforts on our behalf on this project.         An index is a terrific boon for any  diary or book. 

Thank you Kelly!

It has been very cheering that in Len Rhind, from Canada, and Kelly Jones in USA there  has been such practical help from international SRGC  members for this project.

Kelly has had to stop her work on the Bulb Log Index, but remains happy  to advise  anyone  thinking about  volunteering to take over the  task  if they need help. She has kindly  provided Ian with her working sheets to help out  with that.  If you think you could help SRGC by taking over this  index work, please  message  or email Ian.

A huge big thank you  to Tristan Hatton-Ellis for revising and bringing the  Bulb Log Index up to date.

This is a wonderful benefit to me and everyone who is  trying to find plants and subjects in the 19 years of Bulb Logs and I use it all the time.

I have also updated the link above to https://www.srgc.net/filessub/general/BulbLogIndex.pdf
