We hope that you will be able to join us for the next meeting of the Researcher Forum on Friday, January 27, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. in Room G-24 at Archives I in Washington, DC. Archivist David Ferriero will join us for a discussion of NARA’s Citizen Archivist program.
A special feature of the program will be a demonstration of the newly launched Citizen Archivist Dashboard and the National Archives Transcription Pilot Project by Pamela Wright (NARA Chief Digital Access Strategist) and Meredith Stewart (NARA Open Government). They will answer questions and seek suggestions on these new tools, which are now available to researchers and the public. Features of interest to NARA researchers will be discussed, including “tagging,” “transcription,” and “upload & share.”
