NARA Citizen Archivist Dashboard Live!

Check out this new interactive NARA feature!

Now you can tag images and records, transcribe a historical document, contribute to articles, upload your photos, enter competitions and much more!

A nice aspect is that when you choose a “mission” projects are identified as for beginner, intermediate or advanced!  Select that level that best suits your experience!

Check out the main page, http://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist/, click on the various activity links, and spend some time helping “your” National Archives make ever more materials available to researchers!
