About this Item

Title
By the People Teacher Webinar: Crowdsourcing at the Library of Congress
Summary
The Library of Congress launched By the People (crowd.loc.gov) in the autumn of 2018. The application invites users to transcribe, review and tag digitized images of manuscripts and typed materials from the Library's collections. Library experts share how all transcriptions are made and reviewed by volunteers before they are returned to loc.gov, the Library's website. These transcriptions will improve search, readability and access to handwritten and typed documents for those who are not fully sighted or cannot read the handwriting of the original documents.
