UA Libraries has installed web-based transcription software (Omeka and Scripto) to enable anyone to transcribe old letters and documents online. I’ve uploaded a box of correspondence from the Cabaniss collection (about a wealthy landowner who wanted to free his slaves via his will — many of whom were his own children) — and another box of correspondence from the William Gorgas collection. Gorgas was famous for his work in discovering a cure for yellow fever.
Take a look!! And tell your friends! Your transcriptions will enable us to make it easier to find content, as the words you entered will be used to support search and retrieval for scholars everywhere. Thank you in advance for your participation!
