The Smithsonian Transcription Center engages the public in making our priceless collections more accessible. We work hand-in-hand with a community of Digital Volunteers called "volunpeers" to transcribe historical documents and collection records to facilitate research and excite learning in audiences everywhere. Participants have the chance to transcribe a diverse array of collection materials drawn from Smithsonian holdings in science, history, art, and culture. Even transcribing one line is a big help!
