From Stanford Libraries
The University Archives is pleased to announce the launch of a crowdsourcing project to transcribe handwritten letters and documents within its holdings. Accessible at https://www.fromthepage.com/stanforduniversityarchives, the project currently features 8 unique collections for users to transcribe:
- 1906 earthquake and fire
- Leland Stanford, Jr. letters
- Marcia Kirwan Standley (’57) letters
- Notable people (Eadweard Muybridge, Peter Coutts, Sarah Lockwood Winchester)
- Stanford faculty
- Student life
- World War I letters
- World War II letters
The goal of the project is to provide enhanced access, including full-text search, for these unique, deeply personal Stanford stories. The project utilizes From the Page technology, which incorporates IIIF interoperability with the Stanford Digital Repository and Spotlight for full-text indexing and searching.
The project is generously funded by the Stanford Libraries’ Treat Grant.
