Transcribe the Bomb: A Tutorial

This is a guide to participating in the Library's "Transcribe the Bomb" yearbook transcription project.


Thank you for contributing to the Transcribe the Bomb project. Your goal is to transcribe all of the text from the Bomb so that the text can become searchable and the pages can be understood while using adaptive technology.

You will be shown one page at a time, and then asked if the page is blank and if it has text.

Need help?
