Transcribe-A-Thon Pt2: Online Participartory Archives

Student Group

In Part 2: Online Participatory Archives we’ll be joined by guest speakers Emily Cain & Mark Custer, from the Smithsonian Transcription Center to chat about how the transcription center harnesses the power of digital volunteers, from the practical to the technical logistics.

After we’ll exchange stories about the artifacts we’ve transcribed over the week & the lessons we learned from the transcription process.

Bring your questions and stories, as we wrap up the Transcribe-A-Thon in style!

If you can’t make the meeting but would like the participate there’s still time to join us in the SAASC Discord chat: Thursday May 2 from 5-6pm Pacific & potentially another time this weekend! So stop on bye & hang out with us as we work in tandem to transcribe pages from the Smithsonian Collection! (Links to the server can be found on the SAASC website)
