Smithsonian Staff

Started in 2013, the Smithsonian Transcription Center is a website (freely accessible, 24 hours a day) that connects volunteers around the world with Smithsonian collections available for transcription. This crowdsourcing project was developed—with the help of amazing SI Staff and external developers—as a way to improve and increase the quality of public engagement with Smithsonian materials, increase access and use of our digitized content, and create pathways of learning and new knowledge between the public and Smithsonian staff.  In short—the Transcription Center is a place for you (and anyone in the world) to explore materials held within the Smithsonian and play a part in making those collections more accessible.
