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.

The transcription projects include the university yearbooks, 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 the future.

Volunteers have completely transcribed 37,000 pages of the Cornhusker Annual. All of them are available and searchable at University of Nebraska Yearbooks. 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.

To begin transcribing, you can start by clicking on the "Nebraska Soldiers and Letters Home", or "Nebraska Discovery Letters."

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.
