I. OPEN DOORS ANNOUNCEMENTS
Open Doors released two announcements for the upcoming imports of two Lord of the Rings archives, West of the Moon and Lord of the Rings Fanfiction. Thanks to Communications and Translation for their assistance publishing these posts! These mark the eleventh and twelfth archives whose imports have been announced in 2021, with more to come soon.
Open Doors’ import assistant team has also been hard at work compiling creators/works tracking spreadsheets and tags mapping spreadsheets for three archives: Land of Dreams, Weaver of Dreams, and The BuffyGiles Fanfiction Archive. These spreadsheets help us keep track of honoring requests from creators about their works, systematically search the Archive of Our Own for existing copies of works that would otherwise be imported as part of an archive import, and (with help from Tag Wrangling) map the tags used on an archive to the appropriate Archive of Our Own canonicals for use during the import process.
Finally, Open Doors’ technical staff and volunteers have been making significant progress improving our eFiction processing code and applying it to several archive imports! Stay tuned for more imports to come.
