Darrell Johnson has convinced me to start the Dust Jacket Date Range
Project. This project has been suggested by others in the past, but I
think the time is now right.
Each dust jacket image on ModernLib currently has a single date
associated with it -- the actual date of the dust jacket scanned in
(eg 1936) . That date would be replaced by a date range (eg 1934-
1938) when that dust jacket was actually current. A DJ used for just
one year would say "1936 only". If we haven't determined the range,
the date would remain as it is now -- the date of the DJ actually
Darrell has offered to be the clearing house for all info; he'd
correlate it and send the info to me. I'd then enter the changes.
All that remains is to figure this out: How do we know how long a DJ
was used -- that is, the first date it was issued as well as the date
it was replaced by a different one.
Let the discussion commence [:: he said, somewhat optimistically ::]!
