Transcribing Digitized Letters, Journals, and Diaries

The retention of staff who would digitize, transcribe, and create online access to approximately 10,000 pages of letters, journals, and diaries dating from the First World War.

The National WWI Museum and Memorial is America’s leading institution dedicated to remembering, interpreting, and understanding the Great War and its enduring impact on the global community. Our programs/services include collections and archives, exhibitions, education programs; student tours; and events, and the Edward Jones Research Center. Nine staff members will remain employed as our Digitization/Transcription Team. A consultant will organize archival materials, scan/process images, and input data to our collections database. Our Team will transcribe already digitized items and items digitized with this grant, including hand-written letters, journals, and diaries. We will scan/digitize 6,000 pages and transcribe 10,000 scanned/digitized pages. Our digitization program is an important way we provide learning opportunities to audiences; locally, nationally, and internationally. We want to make our entire collection accessible to the globe’s 3.9 billion internet-connected people.
