NC Government & Heritage Library Needs You!

The NC Government & Heritage Library is conducting a crowd-sourcing pilot and could use your help.  This week staff uploaded images into a Flickr set (find it here) and would like to know if you can log onto Flickr and contribute by transcribing them.   At the time of this post, there were 164 documents in the set, though some have already been transcribed.

There are quite a range of documents there – family bible records, newspaper clippings, handwritten family trees, handwritten letters, church records, etc; a large variety.

Their first batch of 50 documents was transcribed in 49 days – how awesome is that?  To transcribe, all you need to do is log into your Flickr account and leave your transcriptions as a comment.  Won’t you contribute?
