Together We Can Do It!

Today we launch the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (http://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist/) & encourage you to get involved in elevating the visibility of the records of the United States.

Citizen Archivist Dashboard Screen Shot

Did you know that many grade school children aren’t taught cursive handwriting anymore & can’t read cursive?  Help us transcribe records & guarantee that school children can make use of our documents.  I'm will have transcribed one myself!

Recognize someone or someplace in one of our photographs?  Add a tag!

Have a photograph in your personal collection you want to contribute?  Upload it!

Have you been researching in the records?  Share what you’ve discovered!  Write an article & post it to the Dashboard so other people can learn from your work.

This is very much a work in progress and we are interested in your ideas for improving the Dashboard.  Other activities we might include?  Send us your suggestions or comments:  webprogram@nara.gov.

I will will am HUGE fan of the wisdom of the crowd.  Don’t disappoint me!
