Spring Service Committee Project: Supporting Digital Historical Initiatives

The Service Committee would like to present its Spring project: Supporting digital historical initiatives. Most of the projects below ask for assistance with transcribing documents. Transcription adds so much value by helping make documents more discoverable in catalogs and other search engines. Digital transcription projects are projects you can work on from the comfort of your own home (with one exception below). Be a part of history while helping to share it with others!
