Digital Scholarship Opportunities

  • Anti-Slavery Manuscripts, by the Boston Public Library. Help turn the Boston Public Library's collection of handwritten correspondence between anti-slavery activists in the 19th century into texts that can be more easily read and researched by students, teachers, historians, and big data applications.
  • By the People- Mary Church Terrell: Advocate for African Americans and Women, by the Library of Congress. Help transcribe the diaries and correspondence of Mary Church Terrell, the founding president of the National Association of Colored Women and, in 1909, a founder of the NAACP who spent her life fighting for the causes of universal suffrage, and the freedom and equality of men and women of all colors in the eyes of the law.

  • Freedmen's Bureau Records, by the Smithsonian Institute. The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands, or Freedmen’s Burseu, was founded in 1865 to assist freedmen, women, and children after the war. The Bureau built schools, helped settle disputes, and regulated contracts between freedpeople and white employers. Help transcribe records of the Bureau to make the records searchable for researchers.
