Introducing Co-Lab: your tool to collaborate on historical records (Libraries and Archives Canada)

Libraries and Archives Canada: Introducing Co-Lab: your tool to collaborate on historical records. “Crowdsourcing has arrived at Library and Archives Canada (LAC). You can now transcribe, add keywords and image tags, translate content from an image or document and add descriptions to digitized images using Co-Lab and the new Collection Search. To make it even more interesting, we will launch what we call ‘challenges’. These challenges are content put together under a theme. For example one of our first challenges is on Rosemary Gilliat (Eaton)’s. Your challenge will be to transcribe her diary and describe her photographs from her Arctic travels. Or instead, try your hand at transcribing the love letters from Sir Wilfred Laurier to his sweetheart and future wife, Zoé – another challenge now available.”
