About this Item

Title

  • Transcription dataset from the Legal Reports (publications of the Law Library of Congress) collection

Other Title

  • By the People transcription campaign title : Historical legal reports from the Law Library of Congress

Summary

  • This dataset is an export of transcriptions for 9,807 images from the Legal Reports (Publications of the Law Library of Congress) digital collection created by volunteers participating in the Library of Congress crowdsourcing program By the People (https://crowd.loc.gov) campaign Historical Legal Reports from the Law Library of Congress. It contains text created by volunteers through a transcription and review process, volunteer-created tags, digital collections metadata, and metadata representing the arrangement of the items in the By the People platform, Concordia.
  • The dataset includes transcriptions and data generated from the pages in the By the People campaign Historical Legal Reports from the Law Library of Congress (https://crowd.loc.gov/campaigns/legal-reports/). The campaign consisted of a selection of then-available online images of digitized content from the Legal Reports (Publications of the Law Library of Congress) digital collection ( https://www.loc.gov/collections/publications-of-the-law-library-of-congress/) . The collection consists of research reports and other publications from the 1940s to the present on a wide range of legal topics prepared by the Law Library of Congress in response to requests or recurring interest from Congress and other federal government entities on issues concerning foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL). Certain historical digitized reports were selected for transcription because Optical Character Recognition did not produce accurate text for those items. See the Legal Reports (Publications of the Law Library of Congress) collection digital collection (https://www.loc.gov/collections/publications-of-the-law-library-of-congress/ ) for all available online items for this collection.
