Smithsonian Looking for Volunteers to Transcribe Historical Documents Digitally

Screen Shot 2013-11-06 at 9.32.13 AMIf you’re a history buff and looking to contribute to the world of education and history, then the Smithsonian is looking for your help. They are looking for digital volunteers to help transcribe their repository of historical documents – journals, letters, and more. Visit the Smithsonian’s Transcription Center and sign up as a volunteer. You can contribute to a larger work (transcribing a volume or a book) or work on smaller assignments, such as a letter or a note.

This a great opportunity to contribute to preserving our heritage electronically and helping to provide broader access of this content to the public.

    Reblogged this on International Conservation Center and commented:
    Digitization of heritage is a crucial step in enabling public accessibility to information. The International Conservation Center – Citta di Roma believes very strongly in teaching and learning with new technologies. As the author, and social media gal for the Center, I have personally been involved in numerous historic transcription projects and have come away with it with a new wealth of information for both myself and the end users.
