One of the principal goals of L/L’s new library website is to create more “surface area” for the virtually endless library of information. That is, to make it more accessible, useable, researchable, and helpful. Toward that end, we have been long at work to build a robust internal search engine that would allow readers to more effectively explore the material in order to support their spiritual seeking and service.
The idea sounds simple enough, but we discovered that it would require months of planning, coding, testing, and collaborative work. The library is a rather complex organization of information itself, and the operations of a search engine even more so.
Today we are happy to announce that it is officially live! You can run a site-wide search using the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner of the website, or a transcript-specific search using the highlighter icon in the upper right, just below the banner. Also, if you would like to read the Operation Manual with some pro tips, please visit our Guidelines.
This is the first time that readers, us included, are able to search the entire breadth of the Confederation channeling - the Law of One and almost five decades of conscious channeling - as a single, synthesized body of material. Once again, we must give our gratitude to Daniel, L/L Research’s web developer. Not only did Daniel manifest and exceed our vision, he also brought his own creative vision and genius to the project, making the engine better than we could have imagined.
And our gratitude lives eternal for the instrument and person through whom was born and gifted so much of the library: the one known as Carla.
We sincerely hope you enjoy and get maximum use out of this new feature. It is a big step for us—one among many more on the long evolutionary road ahead.
If you find any bugs or have suggestions for improvement, please reach out to us at our contact address. And if you would like to share your experience of using the engine or to celebrate the innovation with us, we who are fellow students of the Confederation philosophy, feel free to drop us a line!
There is another project that stands the potential to contribute significantly to supporting study of the Law of One: indexing the Transcript Library. In the near future we will begin gearing up to launch a massive, many-peopled volunteer project to read and tag the 1,600+ transcripts in order to build a super index of topics and questions that will render the library even more searchable and sortable. Imagine an A–Z hyperlinked list of nearly every topic explored in the library. Each topic could be clicked on to reveal every iteration of that concept across almost five decades and over a thousand transcripts of channeling.
If you would be interested in volunteering to contribute to that project, please reach out to us.
