Caves & Karst of the Yorkshire Dales
A further two chapters of this book have now been completed and are available online at http://bcra.org.uk/dales - ch. 29, Caves of Nidderdale by Chris Fox, and - in addition to the original planned contents - ch. 33, Caves of the North York Moors by John Dale and Carl Thomas. The remaining chapters will be available during 2016 and, once they are all online, a paper edition of the book will be published.

CREG Journal 92
CREG Journal 92 has now been published and is available to download from http://bcra.org.uk/cregj The paper publication will be mailed to subscribers by next week.

Cave & Karst Science Online
A reminder (since discussion on Facebook showed that not everyone was aware) that all back issues of Cave & Karst Science, including its predecessors Cave Science and BCRA Transactions are available online and are all FREE for anyone to download.

The earlier issues are OCRed scans of the paper publications. The later issues, from vol 33, are from digital source material. From vol 33 each issue has a web page with a list of abstracts. If anyone wants a project to occupy them, this could be extended to the earlier issues. Essentially this means opening each PDF and pasting the abstracts into a spreadsheet, from which we can add them to the database. But it would be a lot of work.

Thanks are due, to Bob McIntosh, who has done all the scanning and OCR-ing. He is now embarking on scanning earlier publications from CRG and BSA.

Cave & Karst Science Explained
Three more of Charlie Self's "Laymans Descriptions" of C&KS are now online, bringing this feature up-to-date. You can locate these by following the links at http://bcra.org.uk/cks

Speleology Contents lists
Thanks also go to Adam Walmsley, who has completed the compilation of the contents lists for the back issues of Speleology, which are now all online at http://bcra.org.uk/sp The issues of Speleology are all available to download - free to BCRA members, or for a small fee to non-members.
