Bibliotheca Pretiosa: Error 2048.

Dear Friends:

We’ve noticed an error displaying documents in the pages dynamically generated with the Scribd Api. This due to the usage of the now outdated API V. 1, which must be replaced with the API v. 2, to allow native management of all the HTML5 features.

Among this, we are working to update the lost items due to name changing, revisions updated, and other minor issues which disallow the access to some contents in several collections.

Please apologize us by any disturb. We will notify the updates about the solution of these issues.

The Administrative PLGO Board Team.

UPDATE from Nov. 18, 2015:

The problem has been fixed temporarily. The documents are being displayed as flash-based ones, and are totally manageable through the web page

We are working in a whole migration from flash-viewer to native HTML5 standard.

If you still experiencing any trouble, please contact us.

Revue de l’Orient Latin. 1893-1902.

Due to some changes and adjustments in our collections, the past November 23, 2012, some documents were deleted in various collections, some of them being deleted completely.

Between these, the 9 volumes of the ‘Revue de l’Orient Latin’ disappear, letting empty such collection.

We have re-uploaded all 9 volumes, and now they are again on line, and open to public read.

In the next days we will work on the ‘Scriptorum Veterum Nova Collectio‘, damaged too in such date.

Nota: the ‘Revue de l’Orient Latin’ were digitized by Gallica, and may be accessed directly through this link:’orient+latin.langFR

Un aliciente para seguir trabajando. 2’000,000 de visitas.

El día de hoy, las colecciones que hemos puesto a disposición de visitantes y de la Comunidad Académica en general, está llegando a los 2 millones de visitas.

Una cifra nada desdeñable, sobre todo en el medio en el cual realizamos nuestras labores: La Patrología.

4,348 ítems registrados, y 742 seguidores.




El año 2012 ha sido decisivo, y todo un reto a sortear por la comunidad PLGO. Hemos sufrido ataques, amenazas, como pocas veces antes se incrementó el spam, y todo ello ocasionó un fuerte deterioro tanto en los proyectos como en la vida misma de la comunidad PLGO en sus diferentes áreas.

Nos abruma principalmente la incertidumbre de sabernos en manos caprichosas, precisamente las de quienes nos proveen de hosting, quienes han dejado muy en claro su intención de ‘mantenernos en la mira’, y pendientes de cualquier ‘falta’ que contravenga sus intereses: el dinero.

Quieren, a como dé lugar, que paguemos más, que rentemos y solicitemos el uso de un servidor dedicado. Lo cual queda fuera de nuestras posibilidades, y no entra en nuestros planes ni siquiera como una opción a mediano o largo plazo. Por tanto, habremos de seguir trabajando con lo que tenemos a la mano, haciendo nuestra labor lo mejor que podemos, y sobre todo, sabiendo que cualquier empresa dejada en las manos de los hombres tarde que temprano llegará a su fin. Si algo bueno hay en todo esto que pueda ayudar a quienes requieren algún tipo de información, esperamos que sea un mérito, el mínimo entre todos, cuando el Padre nos llame a dar cuentas al final de nuestros días sobre este mundo.

Así, pues, tomamos este hecho quizá intrascendente, como un aliciente para seguir adelante, y no desfallecer aunque el horizonte no parezca despoblado de nubarrones y relámpagos y centellas.

Felicidades a todos y cada uno de los miembros que conforman la comunidad PLGO, y sobre todo, a los visitantes quienes hacen posible que proyectos como el de la biblioteca en línea a través de Scribd, sean mucho más que un mero conglomerado de e-books: un proyecto útil que sirve de la mejor manera posible a la comunidad en general.

1,000,000 of reasons to say: Thank you!

Dear Friends:

Since the beginning of the PLGO Community, our main intention was provide useful tools and contents to our members, visitors and friends.

This involves a lot of work, and finally the effort of all and each one member of our community.

Starting the online library project in Scribd, we was creating a valuable resource, today visited and known by the academical community, as a rich and a serious source of materials.

This can be only reached with your valuable comments, suggestions and contributions to such project: today we are reaching 1,000,000 of document views, in in only 20 months.

We are sure that we are in the right path. We will still working and looking to increase the strong of our Community as a productive entity, and now seems more realizable to reach our propose to provide a 10,000 volumes online library, to the public the 2015 year.

Thanks Dear Friends, to all of you!

The administrators.
