With more content and research moving online, we seek to make digital documents as accessible as possible by crowdsourcing their contents. Volunteers will transcribe handwritten pages and historical newspapers by reading the text and typing it into digital form. Join us for a volunteer session to learn how you can help make historical documents more searchable and usable for researchers now and in the future. After Library staff introduce the platform and demonstrate the activity, volunteers work independently for the remaining time. Sonya Coleman for more information at makinghistory@virginiamemory.com or call Hands On Greater Richmond at 804-330-7400. Registration is required.
