Become a Transcribe Volunteer

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. 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.
