Library of Congress: Celebrating 200 Years of Walt Whitman with Series of Exhibits, Events and Digital Crowdsourcing to Showcase Collections. “The Library’s crowdsourcing initiative ‘By the People’ will launch a campaign April 24 to enlist the public to help transcribe more than 121,000 pages of Whitman’s writings and papers to make them more searchable and accessible online. Documents selected for transcription will include samples of Whitman’s poetry, prose and correspondence, including versions of poems such as ‘Oh Captain! My Captain!’ and fragments of poems Whitman published in more finished form in ‘Leaves of Grass.'”
