W&M Libraries Transcription Project

The Special Collections Research Center at Swem Library is seeking remote volunteers to transcribe Special Collections materials online. No previous transcription experience is necessary, but some familiarity with archival materials or reading 19th and 20th century handwriting is helpful. Collections available to transcribe include Civil War era material, women''s diaries, World War I era material, and French and Spanish language materials. Collections are added on a regular basis.

We are looking for volunteers who can:

  • Work from home using an online transcription system

  • Follow our general transcription guidelines

  • Read 19th and 20th century handwriting, or can learn

  • Work independently
