DIY History: Help build the historical record by doing it yourself

Make digitized artifacts easier to find, use, and share. Libraries lack the resources to describe these items in-depth, so we’re appealing to the public for help:

  • Transcribe diaries, letters, and cookbooks Type entries for handwritten pages to make them full-text searchable
  • Review transcriptions Improve accuracy by correcting spelling errors, omissions, etc.
  • Add tags and comments to historic photographs A picture is worth a thousand words, so add a few to improve accessibility
