Citizen involvement in archives:

 

"NARAtions - RT @archivesnews: The United States National Archives needs your help!"

 

"As part of the recently launched Citizen Archivist Dashboard, you can now participate in the National Archives Transcription Pilot Project. By contributing to transcriptions, you can make these historical documents more accessible to the public.

 

The transcription pilot features over 300 documents (about 1,000 pages) ranging from the late 18th century through the 20th century. We’ve included letters to a civil war spy, various acts and laws, presidential records, suffrage petitions, indictments, and fugitive slave case files."
