I’ve been writing a lot about the 38th Voyage, but in fact I’ve also been working on new content for the database. Here’s a list of content added since the last time I posted such a list:
- Motor Boating (1909-1930). New York: Hearst Corp., 1909-.
- Piet’s Scheeps Index.
- Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society Images (King County Snapshots series). Seattle: University of Washington Libraries, 2003.
- Bruijn, J.R. , ed, F.S. Gaastra and I. Schöffer. Dutch Asiatic Shipping in the 17th and 18th Centuries.
- Harrison, Simon. Three Decks: Warships in the Age of Sail. : Simon Harrison, 2010-2012.
- Hearn, Chester G. Ellet’s Brigade: The Strangest Outfit of All. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 2000.

- WorldCat. Dublin, Ohio: OCLC. (Read more about this import — and increase of content by 20% — at this blog post.)
- Eltis, David, Martin Halbert, et al. Voyages: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database. Atlanta, Ga.: Emory University.
- US Coast Guard Vessel Documentation Center. Merchant Vessels of the United States, via NOAA Office of Science & Technology. : Office of Science & Technology, National Marine Fisheries Service, 2014-. (This is an updated version of an older database, created by the US Coast Guard. The USCG still offers the database, but without ship-specific URLs, so when I discovered this version of the database at NOAA, with ship-specific URLs, I updated the database, and changed the links.)
So, we’re still plugging away at getting new content into the database, even while preparing for the sail. The free database grew by over 20,000 citations. And right now, the subscription database is at 3.36 Million citations.
