Have a go

Our online volunteering tasks involve either cataloguing or transcribing items from our archive collections.

Cataloguing is listing and describing the items within an archive collection to create a searchable record entry. Once this work is carried out, the records are added to our online catalogue so that everyone can find and use them.

Transcribing is copying the text, usually hand written, from a document into a typed version so that is easier to read and find in our catalogue.
