Transcribe-A-Thon at the DCIC- April 2017

The Digital Curation Innovation Center (DCIC) will be hosting a Transcribe-A-Thon every week of April.

THURSDAY APRIL 6
TUESDAY APRIL 11
WEDNESDAY APRIL 19
MONDAY APRIL 24
FROM 5PM TO 7PM

For this event, students will be reading archival documents and typing the printed text into an Excel sheet. Students will then experiment with transcription software that improves the transcription experience and enables public crowd-sourcing. We will be teaching and assisting students who are unfamiliar with transcribing.

There will be free pizza and beverages. Prizes will be rewarded to the top transcriber every week.

All are welcome! Feel free to invite others.

If you would like to participate, please RSVP by emailing dcic.ischool@gmail.com.
