The UGA Libraries are holding a Transcribe-a-thon in honor of Frederick Douglass's 200th birthday on Wednesday, February 14, from 12pm -3pm in the Main Library Instruction Lab.
We will be joining the Colored Conventions Project and the Smithsonian Institution and over forty other institutions to help transcribe the Freedmen's Bureau papers. No experience necessary. Stop in as long as you can, but expect to be there at least 20-30 minutes.
For more info check out the following links and feel free to set up an account with the Smithsonian Transcription Center beforehand.
Because this is a birthday celebration, we will have cake!
