O PROGRAMA DE TRANSCRIÇÕES EM CROWDSOURCING DA BIBLIOTECA DO CONGRESSO

Feb. 27 Webinar: “By the People”: Introducing Crowdsourced Transcription at the Library of Congress

Please join us for our February topical webinar:

“By the People”: Introducing Crowdsourced Transcription at the Library of Congress

In October, 2018 the Library of Congress launched “By the People,” an online transcription project that invites virtual volunteers to transcribe digitized collection materials that were previously only available as images. Crowdsourcing draws on the energy and expertise of Library website users from across the U.S. and beyond, who work directly with primary sources to enhance their usefulness. The full transcriptions that project volunteers create make more Library of Congress materials available for full-text searching online, as well as for use with screen readers and other assistive technology. From among the Library’s vast and varied collection, “By the People” users have worked with collections including the presidential papers of Abraham Lincoln, the papers of American Red Cross founder Clara Barton, the speeches and other writings of Mary Church Terrell, a civil rights activist and co-founder of the NAACP, and baseball great Branch Rickey’s scouting reports—with more to come! 

Join “By the People” program staff for a one-hour webinar that will introduce the Library’s newest online project, demonstrate the transcription and review process along with overall use of the “By the People” crowdsourcing website, and highlight some of the amazing materials that have already been transcribed by virtual volunteers.
