And then there are edge cases. Let’s start with the numbers. At current count, we’ve got:

As mentioned in a previous post, we have recently changed how our ebooks are modeled. As such, we have also had cause to re-create IIIF manifests for each book. In the process, I identified 6 books that weren’t cooperating with our current soup-to-nuts ingest workflow for an ebook. Though admittedly I’ve been wrangling some of these books into the new form for a good week or two, I couldn’t help but think that number is pretty good.

What is 6 books not cooperating out of 591?

.01%

That’s a number. Here’s another. As it was only one page per book that didn’t cooperate, we can think of each book as actually an ammalgamation of images.

What about 6 images out of 76,010?

.0000789%

What!?!?!

Either we are nearly flawless orchestrators of ingest workflow brilliance, or the human mind can hardly fathom how effortlessly computers crank through work.

I’m inclined to beleive the latter.
