    The record has finally reached 15,000, thanks to all contributors, in particular to Andreas Jacob and Jeroen Knijff. To mark this occasion, I have made the following changes to the functionality of this service:
    1. The listing of both BG and NBA is now HTMLised on the web server. This hugely increased the speed of display, while also making listing in the proper order. Please visit "Essential Collections" to experience the change. The link provided from this page (i.e. on the year of publication) is linked to the main database, showing more information about the item if clicked.
    2. Every record search now displays "REVIEW" information (if registered), which was previously visible in "Full Record View" only.
