Help us type transcriptions...

We invite University of Nebraska-Lincoln alumni, students, and friends to help transcribe the text of digitized documents.

The first project is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cornhusker Yearbooks, featuring a wide spectrum of university history. The Cornhusker yearbooks are currently available online at for everyone to read, but they aren't yet searchable. We need your help to create transcriptions that will allow greater access to these documents.

You can start by clicking on the "Transcribe Yearbooks" option below or start by reading the transcription tips we have provided. If you would like to set up an account, it will help you keep track of your own transcriptions, and will help us to acknowledge your valuable contributions to this project.

New documents from the Archives & Special Collections and the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) will be added as future projects.

You may also contribute to your knowledge about our photographs through the Archives & Special Collections HistoryPin channel.

If you have questions, please feel free to leave those in the comments box available on each transcription page or send us a message through our contact form.
