Help us type transcriptions...

We invite University of Nebraska alumni, students, and friends to help transcribe digitized text documents to provide greater, and easier, access to them through full-text searching.

The transcription projects include the Cornhusker Yearbooks (over 80% complete), selected letters from Nebraska soldiers written during World War II, and letters from University faculty whose research focused on Nebraska state history. We also look forward to adding more letters and documents in 2017.

Thank you to all those who have transcribed documents so far! We greatly appreciate everyone's valuable contribution to preserving historical records, information, and the stories we share that are significant to the University, the state, and our history.

Transcribed Cornhusker yearbooks and annuals are available online at for everyone to read

You can start by clicking on the "Yearbooks and Annuals," "Nebraska Discovery Letters," or "Nebraska Soldiers and Letters Home" options.

You can also 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.
