We’ve got a lot of stuff, but comparatively few records are fully digitized and searchable. We want to change that.

We’re looking for digital volunteers to help us transcribe our records & unlock their stories.

You can transcribe historic Civil War-era documents, letters from American artists, field books ore even 100-yr-old botany specimen labels.
