10-20-19 Sitemap
(Not a link)
No, there is no visual sitemap for the site. But websites submit sitemaps to Google and Bing to make sure they look at everything and skip the stuff that is not relevant to site users. I just redid the sitemap for both searches. 31 hours, 5,962,402 pages So when you se occasional days with no new publications... surprises and delights, I always hope... it is because I am updating the machinery that makes this all work. I'm not very good at it, so it takes time. And I hope it is worth it to each user, researcher or old radio announcer or engineer who can look and say, "I remember doing that!"

Over 1.2 million pages of information about radio, electronics, music and broadcasting in the UK is now much easier to search.
We have made the searches work at various degrees of granularity, from a total UK search to subsets and lots more individual titles now searchable.
9-22-19 UK Search Long overdue: the size of the UK collections of books and periodicals warrants a separate search for all of them. This is being created now, with sections for Early Technology, Post-WW II Technology, Music Publications, Miscellaneous and Books, The BBC and Broadcasting, Ham and Shortwave and Individual Company Journals. This will take many days to do as it involves recreating all the search files and moving them onto the server. So if some UK searches do not work, try a day or two later.
