This evening I found a copy of a PDF of volume 56 (works of Chrysostom, vol. 6) of Migne’s Patrologia Graeca edition on my desktop. I paged down a bit, and looked at the table of contents.
Then it occurred to me; shouldn’t the PDF have bookmarks? Rather than forcing me to guess, each time, just which PDF page is “column 514” (or whatever), so that I can inspect the particular work that I really had in mind?
It’s the sort of idea that instantly runs away with you, isn’t it? To do one PDF would take a bit of time; but to do several, never mind all, would be impossible for one man.
Yet it could be crowd-sourced. The end result would be a bunch of PDF’s which were useful to everyone.
Of course you need Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, to edit the PDF files. That cuts down the contributors.
I’m not going to do it. But it’s very tempting!
