The Library’s By the People program invites the public to help transcribe our digitized collections at crowd.loc.gov. Since 2018, our virtual volunteers have completed over 500,000 transcriptions improving search, accessibility and discovery for the papers of Theodore Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, and more. Learn how transcribers are impacting the Library while exploring pages from history—and how you can get involved!
