'Tis the Season to Participate Online!

Throughout this holiday season, we encourage you to participate in the exciting activities featured on the Citizen Archivist Dashboard, which is available starting today. Check it out and try tagging, transcription, editing articles, uploading digital scans, and participating in contests all related to the records of the National Archives.

    Great project idea! I am curious – what is the name of the viewer you are using to display images in the Tagging Project? It works well and I’m impressed.

    Hi Taneya,

    Thanks for the great question. For image zoom on our online catalog, we are using a software is called SeaDragon by Microsoft.
