Cultural Heritage: “Enrich Europeana: Launching the Renewed Transcribathon Platform”
From Europeana Pro:
Transcribathon.eu is an online tool specially designed to enrich content from Europeana Collections, as part of the Enrich Europeana project. It allows people to transcribe and annotate cultural heritage material from Europeana Collections and national aggregator portals. Annotations made to content through this portal (also known as semantic enrichments) will be added to content in Europeana Collections and in aggregators’ or content providers’ portals.
The platform harnesses the power of the crowd to enhance digital cultural heritage and make it more accessible and searchable. Each transcribed word enables the more effective reuse of historical materials in research and education, and contributes towards preserving Europe’s cultural heritage.
