Mental Floss: The Library of Congress Wants Your Help Identifying World War I-Era Political Cartoons

Mental Floss: The Library of Congress Wants Your Help Identifying World War I-Era Political Cartoons. “The Library of Congress just debuted its new digital innovation lab, an initiative that aims to improve upon its massive archives and use them in creative ways. Its first project is Beyond Words, a digitization effort designed to make the research library’s historical newspaper collection more search-friendly. It aims to classify and tag historical images from World War I-era newspapers, identifying political cartoons, comics, illustrations, and photos within old news archives. The images come from newspapers included in Chronicling America, the library’s existing newspaper digitization project.”
